Broken Hammer on Heintzman Upright

Post by TheKeenAmature » 29 Dec 2017, 21:15

Hi folks, looking for some advice. Our Heintzman upright piano (formerly a school piano I believe) had the hammer for E near middle C come off. It looks like there's a broken bracket where the hammer would normally pivot.

I've had the action out of of the piano a couple of times, but cannot figure out how to get into the middle of it where the hinges all reside. Any advice? I've shot a short video here to show the issue...
