Well I hope I can get the youtube video on to this post!
I do not see the heading "File Manager" which would allow me to take the video from my desk top.
How ever this is the information I have.

From FAQ I have read up on adding info from the web but I'm stuck trying to find "filemanager" heading??

That's pretty good (if the video accordeur posted is the right one). What make of piano did you take the action from? The damper backstop attached to the hammer is unusual.

The letoff isn't quite right though - the jack heel never touches the letoff button, so it's unclear how letoff would actually occur. Moving the letoff rail and button down so that it causes the jack to escape would make it more realistic.

I was also wondering why the hammer is attached to the damper backstop. I just did a quick search on youtube and came up with these videos. I have no idea if it's the video the OP wants to post.

Regards.

Yes that is the correct video.
I see that it comes from Piano Technicians Guild. In Kanas City and it is plainly part of a series of their teaching videos.
I read their street address as:4444 Forest Av,K866106.
Telephone:913-432-9975.
I suppose; wwwptg.org is a web site.
I spent most of the day looking at their videos and Bill Bremmer explaining his "mindless" mthod of tuning.

This was in a sidebar link to the cool drafting animation link that accordeur posted. Piano geeks will love this one! (I did... grin )

That is pretty cool, quite a bit of rendering and 3d sculpture needed to make that video.
