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.
Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives. --William Foster
