Fender Rhodes Mark 1 leg flanges
« on: May 25, 2018, 11:37:23 AM »
I recently installed flanges and I'm not exactly sure if they're on the correct way and yes I did make sure they went on like the old ones but that didn't work so I mirrored them common sense? The front one is damaged one and back is the cleaner one that's how I put in the new ones. :o

The leg flanges have an angle to the threading.  You want the angle to point towards the corner of the Rhodes, so that when the legs are installed, they flare outwards.

For example, the front left corner flange should have the threading positioned in a way that the leg would point southwest as you're looking at the piano.

The bottom flange in your picture has a leg's threading jammed in it.  You can unscrew the threading, and take the leg and thread to a welding shop to have them spot weld it into place.
