JANUARY ALL-DAY SEMINAR

Grand Balancing Act – Action Weigh-Off Simplified
Presented by Bruce Stevens & David Vanderlip

DATE/TIME: Saturday, January 12, 2019 7:00AM to 5:00PM
(class starts 8:00AM, but arrive early for badge pickup, coffee, etc.)
LOCATION: Stilwell Pianos, 1941 W Guadalupe Rd #115, Mesa, AZ 85202

How many technicians approach the weigh-off of a grand action with fear and trepidation because there is not a clear definition of proper down-weight vs. up-weight? Join Bruce and David as they demystify this subject with an innovative, quick and easy method using Balance Weight protocols that greatly speeds up the weight-off procedure and provides consistent results. Other considerations of fine grand action work such as geometry, action ratio, inertia, pattern key leading, parts selection and hammer preparation will also be covered. With time permitting, you will have a hands-on opportunity to experience this innovative weigh-off method, going beyond just facts and figures. If you have been apprehensive about any of this work, you should gain confidence after attending this all-day seminar.
