I’m in the process now. Mine was free but I had to get help to move it, even though it is a spinet.

My idea is to put a TV on a lift inside. Ergo I removed all the mechanism (a zillion parts!) and the strings (much heavier than one would think, all bound together) and now I’ll be getting the cast iron out as soon as I remove all the tuning pegs which takes a long time.

I’ll be interested to hear about getting some wood out of one.


I’ll get some pix later.
