For a bit of fun you're invited to share your best "McGyver" piano repair.

McGyver was a popular TV show from the ‘80s where the hero always thwarts the enemy with vast scientific knowledge - sometimes with little more than a paper clip and the duct tape in his pocket.

McGyver: make or repair (an object) in an improvised or inventive way, making use of whatever items are at hand.

The attached "McGyver" example taken from Gary Bruce on the Global Piano Technicians Facebook group with permission.

Gulbransen spinet with a broken pedal. Already been brazed at the first hole. Broken at the middle hole this time. Couldn't find a brazer to do the work fast enough so I made this repair.  Fits and works great. U-shaped iron available at hardware store

Thanks and we hope to see you there!
