Lever Repair Scotch Clip
Glue the broken key back
together with Elmer's Carpenter's Glue.
After it is
dry, open the jaws of a bench vice, and hold the key
lever with the clip points against the side of the lever and on either
side of the break. Have a second person slowly close the vice
jaws as you steady the key lever and clip. Stop when the
clip is well embedded. A second clip may be embedded in the
other side of the key lever, but be sure to offset it
so that the
points do not meet in the wood.

The black line represents a break

the clip is applied in a bench vise, one clip

the key lever. The vise presses the clips in without hammering.
Wood glue should be used at the same time for added strength.
The clips are

THE LEAD IN
Key Leads- Used to weight key levers. Please call and talk to Keith before ordering key leads. They may or
may not be the appropriate step to take for your piano.
These weights are round and are inserted in lateral
holes in the key levers. To determine
you finally want them, glue a couple octaves on top of the key levers with rubber
cement and determine what key resistance you like.
Then, once the ideal position is
drill the key lever in the center of the key laterally with a hole the size of
small end of the lead. Lay the key lever
on a flat surface and tap the key weight into the
hole. Use some drift of some sort to peen the small end to expand the lead
and trap it
in the hole, or glue it in.
If you have extra leads left over, they make
great fishing weights :-)
One lb. 5/8 inch diameter leads
.64 oz ea. (approx 25/lb)
One lb. 1/2 inch diameter leads
.49 oz ea. (approx 31/lb)
One lb. 7/16 inch diameter leads
.40 oz ea. (approx 40/lb)
One lb. 3/8
inch diameter leads .29 oz ea. (approx 55/lb)
"Jiffy" type leads
with two screws to attach each lead-
leads can be attached on top of the key lever or under it.
Some students have an upright with a very light touch, while
have to perform on a grand with a
heavy touch. These can be added
back area of the key lever to give a heavy touch. Later, if you
wish to sell the piano, they can be removed.
It is not smart to only add weights to certain keys.
The overall key touch will become uneven and
By the way, these leads
make great fishing weights where you want
add weight way back up the line from the bait and leader after
you are all rigged up.

to the humidity.
