I have the opportunity to get a very old piano (~100 years old!) for free. I have been told that the higher keys are not working, so they need to be replaced. It seems I need to clean it up internally, and replace the all strings.
I found some tutorials on YouTube explaining how to tune a piano, and some how to fix some parts. I assume I will find the needed tutorials which explain how to fix the rest of the parts.
I have been told that I will need to spray it, but I don't even understand what/where.
I also have no idea which strings to put. If this is acceptable - direct EBay links will be appreciated, otherwise - keywords will help.
Generally - I am still unsure if I should get the piano. Moving it and restoring it will not be cheap (but it will be fun). Any tips will be appreciated.
EDIT: I decided against doing this. Thanks for all the advices.
Some recommended that a professional technician to look on the piano, someone did... and the cost was not worth it. This is why the piano is given at no charge.
