My trusty Reynolds short lever, perfect for those hard to access pins. Not sure how I’d manage without it. #piano #pianotuner #tuninglever #tuninghammer #wrestpins #tuningpins

When the power tools aren't strong enough and you have to remove 216 tuning pins by hand....... 😠💪 🛠

The beginning of a creepy Halloween style fairy house. Base created old pump organ key wood and old piano parts. This is a work in progress, but it’s fun to show the stages as they progress. House will be covered in old clothing scraps soaked in Powertex (once I purchase it this weekend). The base of the house was created with an empty wood stain can. #salvaged #workinprogress #reclaimed #repurposed #pumporgankeys #tuningpins #pianoparts #hauntedfairyhouse

Got some before and after pictures of restringing this 1895 piano’s treble and bass strings. (The ‘before pics’ are those with silver tuning pins, and the ‘after pics’ are those with black tuning pins.) Now onto rebuilding the action! #piano #pianos #mjspianotuning #pianorefinishing #pianorestoration #pianorefurbishing #oldpiano #oldpianos #antique #antiquepiano #pianostrings #pianotuner #pianotuning #treble #bass #bassstrings #treblestrings #tuningpins

A quick update on my grandson’s ukulele: It is coming together better than I had hoped. I had to turn the tuning pins and modify the original design, which I found online. With the right tools, such as this reamer that my husband made for me a few years ago, it may actually make music. #woodturning #woodporn #ukulele #lovemyhobby #teachingkids #tuningpins #diyukulele

Some close-ups of my drilling session - with all the mess I made. It took me a good couple of days to finish - whenever I found some time, I was at a drill press. Next, I’m going to bore one more hole where a tine and tone bar separator (tuning pin) will sit. Of course, times 73 :) .

A tine and tone bar connector (tuning pin in my design) being glued with aluminum epoxy glue. The process is quite simple but it requires taking repetitive measurements for each instance so that the future consistency of a strike line can be preserved. Still 72 more to go. (For the sake of the clip and peace of mind I used my mock tone bar, otherwise things would go wrong due to the pressure of recording.) .

Finally, a closer look of the whole tone generator assembly comprising a square tone bar, a piano tuning pin and a tine. The piano tuning pin(blue) serves as an element connecting the tine to the tone bar. Unlike later Rhodes models, the tuning pin in my design is permanently glued with aluminum epoxy glue, but since it’s not a commercial project I don’t really mind. When a tine breaks, I can simply pull out the tine with its assebly part and glue in a new one. In the last picture you can see my modified holes I designed to fit later model springs and grommets - and all the setup works just fine. That’s all for now :) #electricpiano #fenderrhodespiano #fenderrhodes #project #design #poland #tuningpins #tuningfork #music #sound #tonebar #photography #photo #photographer #handmade #piano #usa #1960s #vintage #vintagevibe #vintageinstruments #assembly #pianowire #pianoproject #rhodesmaker

Complete restorations require a new pin block and tuning pins. It's helps bring the instrument to a better-than-new condition. ✨
