I actually just took a look at your fb album on this one; that looked like a fun project!

Thank you Ed for the info on the strings!

Rich, thanks for the tidbit of info and the video that you posted. I really appreciate all of the advice and info posted so far!

*quick update* I confirmed a date of 11-14-14 with the piano movers just this afternoon! Only one week left to go and I simply can't wait to get it home!!! grin

It was indeed. It seems as though you've had quite a few fun projects over the years and I really enjoyed browsing your albums. If you were closer, I'd invite you to come take a look at this one.

I relish getting into pianos up to my elbows.

If I'm ever in your neck of the woods, I'd love to see it.......and meet you. smile
