Thank you for your kind words, I am also not indifferent to harpsichord music.
Here specially for Bob short translating "Max's English"

Alexander Rosenblatt owner of the most rare but honorable profession in Israel. He is a technicians of a harpsichord
Each harpsichord restores at least six months . Makes everything very carefully and meticulously to try maximize transfer in a harpsichord era.
Alexander carefully checks his work personally .He plays things early Beethoven or Mozart. He thinks that need high dress up when you need to perform the music and asks you not to consider him as eccentricity : " With a hammer can work in a T-shirt . Can I play the harpsichord in a T-shirt ? "
Alexander is not afraid of losing their job .There are six millionth Israel about 100 harpsichords , who brought with them the Jews from around the world .
The university recently Bary- Lam invited Alexander to be the caretaker of vintage keyboard musical instruments. Alexander writes a thesis "a history of Arab Christian religious music" now. Seldom Alexander plays the organ at St. Peter's Church in Jerusalem

May be it so. But it may be a square piano with first primitive hammers?

Thanks for taking the time to translate. "Max's English" is good enough. (I always found harpsichords easier to tune with a t-lever.)

At 1.52 on the video. Is this not a fortepiano?
We had too many instruments in the house. (And a few in the garage!) Harpsichord was the least played so we sold it. We're down to just one piano now.

Yes, I think these are the same. Tuning a harpsichord doesn't require much leverage and there's little pin flexing and no pin setting, so a t-lever worked better for me.

You're a lucky man, Bob because you have a lot of piano at home. But I do not have even one. I live in a small apartment. If I wanna to place piano here I would have to sleep bath

If it had not been for a little space in the kitchen to accommodate the harpsichord, we would have slept in the bath tub too laugh Kitchen is no place for an instrument. Especially one that's 6'. It had to go. I believe it found a nice home in Oklahoma.
Hope you're able to get a piano one day.
