pater57, since you are doing some fairly comprehensive work, I think it would really help you to buy one of the books. Reblitz, or Pianos Inside Out, or the Haynes Piano Manual. These outline sequences for regulation. Byt far the best is Pianos Inside Out, though it's dearer than the others.

I have to ask. How did you learn to do all that work without consulting a book that has the regulation steps in it?
