Does anyone know of a reliable online reseller of WNG action parts that is willing to sell to the general public?

I picked up an inexpensive old piano with the sole intention of tearing it apart and rebuilding it just to learn how to do it and maybe end up with a playable piece of furniture at the end. Obviously since I'm just a lowly DIYer I can't order directly from the source but at the same time I can't really take myself seriously enough to actually want to call and meet with a real technician. I just like toiling by myself but need a place to sell me some parts.

John, join your local PTG if you have one. Then you can attend meetings and talk to techs. You don't have to be one yourself. Also opens doors to buying stuff, such as from WNG directly, if you tell them you're a PTG member.

Keith, I sent an email from the stevespianoservice.com website right before I posted this thinking that I wouldn't get a response for a while and I think you replied right after I posted it. I hope to be calling you soon to discuss further.

Thanks, Emery. I've considered joining but wasn't sure if I should since I'm not really doing this as a business.

Are there any other sources of black/carbon fibre action parts that aren't made in China?

Don't think so. Maybe they would become available if enough people wanting to pay double could be identified.
