Can someone tell me what the 3 knob like adjustments that look like they are attached to the soundboard on an upright piano are? It looks like they tighten, but only by hand. Mine are kind of loose and I don't know if I should tighten them or let them be.

Thank you in advance

If you are refering to the nuts for the action bolts then they should be tightened, else your action (mechinism) will be even more out of regulation.

It wont actually be going though the soundboard, but a cut off section.

Don't tighten the top one too much. If you do, the transmission will bind and you can't shift gears.

I've been following this forum for about 2 years now. It's nice to see Larry writing again, especially since he left the piano forum. I have to agree about what Larry says in the other thread, this is the tuner/technician forum.
Pefection, yes action bolts should be tightned by hand. Please keep on asking questions, but if you have advice for people, go to the piano forum.
Larry, man you get to the point, but your also very funny.

That's called being polite to someone who has spoken well of you. You *are* aware of the concept, aren't you?

Yeah I sure have. I'm half Arapahoe Indian. My grandfather was pure Indian. Then we got mixed with hispanic, french and other latin blood. Kind of stubborn, bullheaded, and you're right keep us away from the alcohol.
