If you do get it to A440 then don't expect it to stay there for very long. It will keep dropping pitch and require re-tuning regularly over many months.

Thanks. I'm up to roughly 415. I'll leave it for a week and see.

Yes, I've got an 1892 wooden fame but with 3 heavy iron bars reenforcing. If I can find an iron frame with as good a sound I'm replacing it. It drops as soon as the tech walks out the door. I'll have to visit any trelatives I give this cottage one to regularly for a tune!

I found the pics I had taken of a similar Broadwood. They are small file size versions, ut I;ve uploaded them to my old Tumblr piano blog which I haven't used in ages, just so that you can get a look at them. Note the odd stringing pattern round the hitch pins, and the wound strings with windings going across the hitch pins: Pianopinions Blog

Yes, I've got the same space invaders shape hitchpin arrangement and windings going across. One explanation is I can see Broadwood are trying to make something as short as possible. The action is quite squashed - I had to search out the bridle tapes.
