About this item:

  • OPEN PERFECT "V" JOINT SPACE: The shimming chisel piano tool is used to create a flawless "V" joint area of the right depth, as well as to trim and scrape the hardwood shim once it has been glued.
  • “VEE" SHIMS SHIMMING STYLE: "Vee" shims and "parallel" shims are the two types of shims available. Vee shims have a pie-shaped cross-section and are widely available at piano supply stores. They're bonded in place with a "shimming chisel" that's dragged through the cracks and forms a similar vee-shaped groove.
  • TRIM EXCESS SPRUCE SHIM: The tool's groove is shaped like a "V." After that, a spruce shim with the same shape will be inserted into this groove. The spruce shim is tapped into the "V" groove and allowed to cure with the help of proper adhesive. The tool's chisel end is then used to reduce the spruce shim's excess down to the sound board's level.
  • HIGH QUALITY MATERIAL: This shimming chisel is made of high-quality steel and has a comfortable vinyl handle. Steel's most important features are its high formability and durability, as well as its high tensile and yield strength. In addition, the grip improves comfort and slip resistance.
  • PIANO TECHNICIANS RECOMMENDED: This is a very essential tool for piano technicians when it comes to repairing a piano soundboard to mend soundboard cracks and restore the instrument’s sound.
