Hi,

Please see photos:

http://my.imageshack.us/v_images.php

I took off one of the wippens from my piano action (baby grand - Mason & Risch). I want to clean up each wippen but not do any unnecessary work. I have very little experience with wippens and was looking for some advise on what (if any) work needs to be done to fix them up.

I was thinking about replacing the felts but they seem to be OK with lots of room left for adjustment. I was thinking maybe of replacing the Capstan felt?

The springs seem fine - but not sure how to judge this - they have reasonable tension on them.

Should I find a wippen that needs replacing what would I replace it with? A generic one and canabalize what parts I can from the original?

Appreciate any feedback on thoughts on the condition of the wippen.


Thanks
