RE: Chinese spec piano makeover

We jumped ship and pulled the pins. Turns out, as I surmised, the block was not only screwed with two quite large screws to the rim, accessible only underneath the plate, but there was also a tuning pin in there as a dowel. Forget that. Tried prying up against the bushings briefly...forget that...

What are the huge phillips type screw heads on these Asian plates. Are they in fact phillips? I don't think they are Pozidriv. Just ordered a no. 4 phillips, and no 3 Pozidriv, but I think its larger than that.​ -- Jim Ialeggio grandpianosolutions.com Shirley, MA 978 425-9026 --
