Viennese Piano Brassware

Feet (Sabots)
The holes in the feet are formed by aluminium plugs in the mould used to make the waxes; in the case of Ref. 108 the hole passes right through the foot so the plug is longer than the foot. Measurements are approximate since the edges of the plugs are radiused.
Legs are fitted to the feet by first copying the size of the plugs, given above, and then fitting the leg to the foot. Refs 22, 95 and 210 are secured with a screw up through the bottom. The plug which forms the tapered hole in Ref 95 and 210 is 18mm square tapering to 15.5mm over the depth of the hole which is 18.25mm. Actual sizes vary as casting by lost wax is not an exact science. Get the sabots before shaping the bottom of the leg.
