Found it surprising that your tuner would replace the loose pins for free? - I suppose the odd one or two could be 'thrown in' .... but sometimes on 100 year old pianos - 100 year old strings dont like to be completely de-tensioned, then whizzed back to about 80kg of pressure.... and occasionally they break! ...... so if strings start to break, it may not be a 'freeby' ...... also ask your tuner about the possibility of ''pin-tite' - a special liquid injected into the wrest pin holes, but a bench truck is needed to tip the piano over onto its back.
Hope everything goes OK.... but you must keep saying to yourself over & over again.... ''this piano is over 100 years old'' ......'' this piano is over 100 years old'' !!
