Try to avoid pre 1990 pianos unless you are going to get a tuner to look at it for you or buying from a dealer who will guarantee it.

Avoid all mini pianos, Kemble, Evestaf. As they are just passed it, Normal Kemble and Evestaff pianos are fine if you follow the 1990 rule as most mini piano where made pre-1970.
Lindner pianos run away from them

As well as the Lindner pianos, there was a similar one called Topic; run away from these as well!
I play for my own amazement... :piano;
