Six of us met at Jim Connolly's shop on January 13, 2014. Topics covered during our technical discussion included jigs we can use to get precise results when boring hammers, tuning stability issues, why hammers nearest the struts are less stable in both tuning and voicing, re-gluing a soundboard that became separated around the rim, different types of glue and their uses, and customer relations.
Jim Connolly gave the program on how we can use massage to treat ourselves and reduce the pain that comes with the repetitive activities and stress that are a part of our work. His information came largely from a book, The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook.
Our February meeting will be held at the shop of Dennis Ashly. We will be showing the video, "American Grand." All of us are looking forward to seeing the video and discussing the rebuilding of the grand piano.
