In an upright piano, the dampers can easily be spotted if you peer inside a piano. They are pressed against the strings and lift up when you press the right pedal. A good piano will have its damper UNDER the hammers. A lower quality, antiquated piano will have its dampers OVER the hammers, obscuring them from view.

 

Pianos Recycled supplies top quality vintage and antique slotted wood screws for DIY and professional restoration and repurposing projects. Our fasteners have been reclaimed from unwanted 19th and early 20th century pianos.

 

Slotted wood screws are a necessity for antique furniture and piano restorations. As slotted steel wood screws become harder to find, Pianos Recycled makes it a priority to collect and stock all fasteners found in our piano deconstructions. For the DIY’er, round head screws are commonly used to attach hardware to antiques.

 

We stock a good range of all types of wood screws and square drive coach screws but if you can't find what you want in or online store, please contact us as we'll try our best to help. Email us at sales@pianosrecycled.eco

_______________________________________-

 

It wasn't until the late-1700s that mass production of screws was made possible. Scientific instrument maker Jesse Ramsden invented the first screw-cutting lathe in 1770, which inspired subsequent inventors to create machinery for mass production of the screw.

 

Screws are relative newcomers to the production of furniture and pianos and did not become a common woodworking fastener until more efficient tools were developed around the end of the 18th century.

 

Screws with points are built after 1890.
