Thanks for the post. If you care to, visit the site 'Accordion Revival' for a more detailed instruction on treble keys held in place by a spindle rod. I would also add that anyone attempting to try this type of repair - the spindle rod needs to be chucked into a drill and spun for re-inserting. Hammering it back in will result in key bed damage.

Oops! I didnt hammer mine back in, I just pushed it. Will I have done some damage then? I managed to solve most of the problems, just have one sticky key left that I just cant solve!

Prob not if it went in straight. You shouldnt hammer it - Jim was effectively saying use a twisting movement faciltated by something to hold it that you can twist - ie a drill chuck, chuck.

Hi Marie - Can I be so bold as to suggest you start a new thread on this - it's not something I've dealt with specififically and will get Jim D's etc attention easier as a new thread - and its a common problem so there could be a lot of interest in the future & in responses.
