Customer Question

I have a Crown Upright piano, George Bent, Chicago, series H that belonged to my grandmother. I don't know whether to scrap it or look for someone to restore it. It weighs half a ton! It has sentimental value and I'm a pianist. However practically speaking the hammers have hardened with age and it's very honky-tonk. My piano tuner says the sounding block holds the pins very tight and it's maintained good relative pitch. But the action needs work. Need help in figuring out what to do.
