I just found this video, by Eric Peppe.

"I am replacing a high treble string on a grand piano to the soundtrack of myself playing Beethoven's Rage Over A Lost Penny on the same piano (not at the same time, but using the new string)."

Lousy technique! Cranking tuning pins up and down like that is not a good idea.

"Imagine it in all its primatic colorings, its counterpart in our souls - our souls that are great pianos whose strings, of honey and of steel, the divisions of the rainbow set twanging, loosing on the air great novels of adventure!" - William Carlos Williams

Nope. Nope. Nope. Lousy, indeed! Coils should be wound on a dummy pin, and then transferred to the pin in the piano (which should be backed out 1.5 times). The method shown will kill the pin torque. It also looks like the coils aren't seated correctly....
