Do any of you use the plate inserter tool on the butt flange of some of the older model uprights. This little brass plate is hard to install at the best of times and is often broken and I run into this quit a bit. There is a tool called a Butt Plate Flange Inserter I see it advertised in various supply stores. No pic sorry but I'm sure you know what I mean.

My question is if I purchased one will it actually make installing these little monster-plates any easier or is it just another shining tool that is never used?

I have no idea what you’re talking about. I would post this in the Piano Forum rather than ABF.

You need the piano technician forum. Of course, whenever I have a problem with my butt flange, then I use an ACME brand Butt Plate Flange Inserter Plus+++ tool - no other will do the job...

I think I need to order a Butt Plate Flange Inserter just so I can have the box sitting on my desk as a conversation piece.

We have NO idea what you mean. We can only imagine. But whatever it is, I think the ACME plus plus plus butt flange plate inserter may do the job - it does for Sam.?!

reminds me of my apprenticeship days when I was sent to the store for a box of male and female nipples, which despite my protests turned out to be real things. Before that I had been sent to the store for a long stand and the storeman just said ''wait over there''.

I would have bet good money this thread was going to head in a certain direction (where the sun is in supply) in short order. laugh I double-checked the date on the OP to see if was April 1.

I have a Butt Gauge in my carpenter tools. I haven't used it in years but many jokes were made about it 40 years ago...
