Steinway's tubular metallic action frame.

This type of action frame has been patented by Steinway in 1868 and is still used (by Steinway only today.
I painted the action brackets. I have to say the brackets were the perfect guinea pigs to test the paint colour that I will use on the iron frame. The 4th paint was the right one!
Also attached to the frame are these little guys called the jack buttons.
The felts had to be replaced.
I also replaced the hammer rail cloth (in red).
Ready to welcome hammers and wippens!
