It's the wrong design for a Blüthner, but they did fit something that fell apart in the same way to a lot of their Style-IV grands back in the day! laugh


Started work at the Blüthner piano re-building workshop in Perivale, UK, in 1989. Self employed since 2000. Learning something new about pianos every day... smile

accordeur,
I am appalled sir! Every real technician know that hide glue is vastly superior to CA glue.

Hide glue is what you use to hide the fact that there might be anything wrong with that bracket.

Weren't the original YC brackets that were warping gray? And, weren't the *replacement* brackets gold?

Does this mean that the replacement brackets are now warping?
