there's a nice front page article in today's paper, a.k.a. The New York Times, about production methods, etcetera, at Steinway Piano Company. it's worth buying a copy.

snipped: "That's the way it's been for 150 years at Steinway. That unchanging process is one reason that Steinway's factory, once a showplace of innovation, is now something of a time capsule for manufacturing methods that other industries left in the rush to automation - so much so that Steinway's manufacturing director, Andrew Horbachevsky, describes what goes on at the factory as "antimanufacturing."
