Just bend the rods Brian - only a tweak, where they come through the box.

You may well awaken in the near future to find a decapitated Piano Accordion in your bed. Be warned you are on a list!

It's simple Richard, just make him an offer he can't refuse.  8)

Thanks Lester, I have obviously arrived - although where remains a mystery  ;)

I did Nick but Brian has his own HA114 now (yet still retains some sort of emotional attachment to the Georgie)

Brian, if you don't like the barbaric idea of bending the rods, waft some vinegar fumes over them (avoid getting it, or tartare sauce, near the reeds) as a little rust can also be very supportive.

Melodeon's tip (using ivory soap on the spindles to overcome gravity) got me thinking...instead of soap I've lightly embalmed the spindles with a smear of moustache wax (The Gentleman's Stiffener) and it seems to do the trick. It's a temporary fix until I find out exactly how and where to fit magnets, what sort of magnets, where to source them etc....

Tis only my admiration of your advances in the MAD quest that prevented the suggestion to annoint the stop rods with Marmite appearing in print  Brian ;D Application of soap sounds a reasonable solution if you can get it to stick

You have my assurance that the lack of Giordy here is purely fiscal  (:)

Red rubber bands as left behind by the postperson... :|glug

But you have to be quick, they have been using inferior rubber bands for some time now and they degrade very rapidly on the pavement - probably a "green" measure to justify the cost saving!

Rubber bands disappeared altogether from our pavement when our postie was been 'upgraded' from carrying a mail bag to pushing a bright red PO pram.
