Anyone who is going to rebuild actions needs one.
Decades too late, I finally built one myself.

I've cut it twice and it's still too short.

I like the simplicity and ingenuity of it. Why didn't you make it strike all the keys instead of just half? I wonder how reliable it will be from piano to piano as time goes on?
I rebuilt mine 4 times and run it for about an hour on new hammers. Great machine to have that's for sure.

Here's my latest key pounder video.
