Upright Piano cradle thingy

Post by MarkGoodwinPianos » 23 May 2011, 10:15

Hi there
If anyone has a 2nd hand piano cradle for lying an upright piano on its back please let me know.
I'm keen to get one.... otherwise my Dad may make one.

Eric made mine out of v. strong ply and had the local smithy make the toes. Metal piping was used for the handles which screw on. The whole thing folds flat measuring about 4 foot by 3.
I play for my own amazement... :piano;

I haven't got a camera. I could draw you a diagram and post it if you want. Sorry, chicken, I belong in the 19th century! :mrgreen:

Well, did we really need all the changes during the past century anyway, eh?

I think you're probably better off, Gill :lol:

I'm already upset that I won't see the 22nd century. I bet it will be brilliant... and also more horrible than you can imagine.

Apparently within 750 years planet earth will have room for only 1 square meter of land per person. So between now and then things are going to get pretty uncomfortable
