Title: Key re-bushing
Post by: Oliver Sheen on May 20, 2022, 03:36:05 PM
IS there any information on how to use the Vintage Vibe rebushing kit? I've looked and looked but to no avail. I can't believe there isn't a video for it

I have seem some  that cover rebushing acoustic piano keys and it looks as though without the correct expensive tools it would be very fiddly and take an age (it would take a long time WITH the correct tools)

I have tackled all the other restoration jobs with no problems but this one is foxing me.

You do it the same way as an acoustic piano. You need cauls to hold the felt in until the glue dries. Or, at the very least, the spring clamps made for this. Trim the felt after the glue dries, not before.
