Here's the pictures, in case anyone wants to see them without following the link:
The first one looks really bad, especially the coils down on the plate. It makes me think he drove the pins down to tighten them up. That one coil on the end is a real mess.
The second picture looks much better to me. I feel these could be made acceptable with a minor amount of work using a coil lifter and a coil tapper. Some of the coils look nice and tight. I'm not to keen on the becket sticking so far out, but that doesn't really hurt anything. Just looks a little untidy. I still prefer that to the "locking beckets" that some manufacturers used. Those really suck.
I would be careful not to throw the baby out with the bathwater (as my dad was so often fond of saying :))
I'm more concerned about the rest of the work - the hammers shanks and flanges. If he is getting the parts from Brooks LTD, then you may be in OK shape, because they can do all the boring, tapering, and hanging on the shanks. As long as they line up with the strings the job may be acceptable. That being said, the piano will need to be regulated, and hopefully the technician is better at regulating than stringing.
The price you quoted seems very low. Here's how I would bid the work you listed. This is just a "ball park" quote, of course. The second lower number listed would be what I would consider "low end prices" for these items.
Restring bass section $1200/800
New hammers shanks and flanges: $2400/$1600
Action regulation: $1200/600
Tone regulation: $600/90
You said he quote $2700 for the whole job. Thats substantially lower than a "econojob" So he must not be marking up the parts, and he's probably not included much action regulation or tone regulation.
Keep us posted how things work out! Should be interesting drama...
