Kids, it is all right to try this at home, but you MUST do these two things:
1: Remove the rear wheels (casters) of the piano, so the bottom of the thing cannot roll towards you and break both your legs.
2: Make darned sure the top of the thing does not tip towards you and break all your ribs.
That in order; what we have here is a Schumann & Sons upright piano, minus all the Stuff in front of the strings. Aside from the potential hazards mentioned above, it was super easy to get it to this stage. The entire action (mechanism) lifted out in one easy piece. ("...one easy piece." Who gets it?) The rest was just two flat blade screwdrives and a crow bar.
It does not look possible to separate the "harp" from the sound board, since there are screws under the strings. But obviously it will sound better with the board on it anyway.
I figure I will install it flat on some sort of cart so it can be rolled around.
Once that is done, who has a cat we can toss on there?
