We had an excellent turnout for our October meeting at the Keyboard Concepts warehouse in Van Nuys. Our own Isaac Sadigursky, RPT, was our guest speaker. He had a wonderful grab bag of tips-n-tricks that included many demonstrations on the subjects. Lots of nuts, bolts, t-nuts, plugs and gluing tips were shared. Many new, returning and wannabe PTG members were in attendance which livened the discussion, too.
Our thanks to Adam Chester, Manager of the Sherman Oaks Keyboard Concepts store, for helping to arrange this meeting. And special thanks to Armando, shop manager at the warehouse, for taking care of us while we were there.
In November we have a special treat. We will be meeting at the rebuilding shop of Gene Korolev, RPT. Piano Solutions XXI is a very unique environment. Gene is both an inventor and a machinist and much of the equipment he uses in his shop is of his own invention and created with his own hands. Serious high end stuff, some of it using lasers to assure correct calibration and alignment of parts. Gene will be taking us on a tour of his shop and demonstrating several of the common tasks many of us do, but showing us how he does it using his precision equipment. He promises demonstrations on stringing, regulation and hammer hanging as examples of the subjects that he anticipates covering. Bring your questions.
