WOODEN LEG THREADS
The pitch at which leg screw threads were originally cut is no longer available from modern metric thread cutters. Using original thread cutters, we can offer
1" diameter; for some continental squares (e.g. Mercken 1784) (3 turns per inch)
1 and ½" diameter; for English squares (3 turns per inch)
2" diameter; for later grands (e.g. Pleyel c1845) (3 turns per 1+1⁄8'')
Threads are supplied as standard with a 1 inch diameter stub; should you have a very early piano, you may request a ¾ inch stub, to suit the thinner turned legs.
We also offer a fitting service, where legs with broken threads can be sent to the workshop for the precision fitting of new threads using our lathe.
