Hi, Les! It's great to see you here again! I remember you coming back as a piano tech - glad to see it's still working for you. What a great story that was. Yup, bumps in the road I see. But do you still play that great swinging music? Or just dance

It's been a long time since I last posted here. I started my search for a piano on this site, heck it's gotta be 8-9 yrs ago. It lead me to purchasing a restored 1919 M&H A. I made a lot good friends here, have attended the Mason & Hamlin

The simple, safe answer is don't do it. For a comprehensive answer, see Del Fandrich's article in the February 2015 Piano Technicians Journal. You can cause serious damage tightening bolts on some pianos.
