    Greetings all,
    I found these in the tool kit of a retired/deceased technician. I assumed they were Steinway Teflon bushings, but maybe they're not. At first they looked to be threaded, but now I see they're ribbed (I'd heard that S&S bushings were fluted?). There are two sizes; the smaller will not fit a 19 broach, the larger with effort.
    They were kept in a tin marked at some time with "Neupert Quills"--obviously not quills but perhaps he had worked on harpsichords (at least he did in 1975...).
    Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    Yes, those are S&S teflon bushings, Scott.

    Correct. These are teflon bushings.

    I tuned a Neupert harpsichord once or twice. I also once ran across a 7' Neupert grand piano.

    Krispy Kreme Mini Donuts. The Donut Holes are used as sprinkles (Jimmies around Boston).
