Our own Isaac Sadigursky, RPT, will be our guest speaker in October. He will be discussing and demonstrating several interesting subjects.
Starting off, he will be showing us some uncommon repairs that we could possibly experience in the field, and how to make them.
Different jobs require different tools. Rather than hunt through your collection to find the right tool for the right job, Isaac will be sharing his very well organized method of how to pack your tools for various jobs.
Some repairs require a nuts-n-bolts approach, in a limited space. Isaac's next topic will be the use of T-nuts for common repairs. He'll also show us how to deal with broken screws in cabinets, lid hinges, pedal bottoms, leg casters, even broken tuning pins.
And finally, Isaac will be showing us an uncomplicated way to replace broken agraffes. Hopefully we will learn how to do this without also having to replace the strings.
Isaac will have a certified junk piano on which to demonstrate all these repairs, and he promises that this will be a hands-on evening. Isaac is a wealth of valuable information and tips and a very entertaining speaker. Please join us.

On the right you will see what used to be a Budget truck rental place, and on the left is the famous Bill's Burgers stand. Drive past the Budget rental trucks on the right and see the address 14744 on the side of the next building. One of the loading dock doors will surely be open.
