This video shows a field repair technique for boring an upright piano hammer for shank replacement. This is the technique I use when working in customer’s homes.
Boring an upright hammer
Duane McGuire, RPT
I love pianos: as a musician, as a technician, and as a craftsman. The joy of my profession is to bring out the best in every piano I encounter.
Words to Live by
The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. --James Michener
