Hey all,

I was going to just add this to the current thread on How It's Made, but I couldn't edit the title, so I figured nobody would know it was there.

Anyway, I made a new thread so anybody who wants to see it can now see it!

How It's Made video

.... and yes, the heavy set, graying, but dashingly handsome guy at the end of the video is me. smile

Thanks for posting that - I've been looking forward to seeing it. But is it just my computer, or is the sound only coming from the right side?

Me too. Audio had a huge humming noise with sound only from right speaker. frown

On the positive note, very educational and informative video. Does this video reflect the prepping a vertical piano made after delivery from off shore factory or are the pianos being build on site?

Wow, he has adjustable duplex scaling in an upright piano?

It's a pity about the background music loop and narration style in this video. It reminds me of countless safety induction videos, educational presentations, company promotional videos etc. =\
Good to be able to view it online though - not sure it would ever have screened in NZ.

Nice video, Rich!

I've actually seen the other two videos before on How it's made, the old battle axes and the flags...

Congratulations again!

Yes, we thought it might be a waste of time, but no - it makes a difference.

Maybe this is something I have control over. I hadn't noticed this but I will look into it. Thank you for the heads up.

Yeah, everything is reverse down under, but in this case, I'm pretty sure you have your speaker wires reversed, or your computer was wired incorrectly, and you never noticed before.

LOL, Rich. After looking at the video again, I have to correct myself. I did not notice the first time I saw it that you were wearing a bib while you were assembling that piano, which made you look "somewhat heavy-set".

So you're in the clear. Guys, hold off on the fat jokes as far as Rich is concerned. wink

Since he won't answer, it's a Chicom built unit. The program should be called "How It's Finished".

Rich's first post was very clear that the show featured the final assembly and prep.

I probably missed that. Appreciate the clarifications Guapo Gabacho. It's really nice to see this effort into final prep and assembly.

Rich, Thanks for the interesting video. It was nice of you to show up wearing an apron after all the work was done.

I took this opportunity to look at some of the other videos linked to your web page. Lots of new stuff. Did you completely redo your web site??


Enjoy

Hi Dave,

Yes we did. It is a work in progress. We still need to add some inventory and more video content. Watch for a new series on our blog that discusses individual instruments with a special guest pianist!

Thanks for the comments, Dave.
