I went to a PTG meeting this past Tuesday and one of the chapter members is trying to id who made a grand piano whippen assembly that had
a movable whippen heel. The whippen had a flange pointing down with a long post that had what looked like a regulating button. The whippen heel rotated and was not fixed. If someone could help date this thing and what pianos it was used in and how it worked it would be a big help. He sent samples to his supplier but they could not id it. I think he is trying to find a few whippens like these to replace in an old grand in his shop.

The Pianotek ad in the Journal shows their "Miracle whip" that has a moveable heel - is the one you saw VERY different?
