McCarthy Posted May 7 Share Posted May 7 (edited) Hello, I have a button that's giving me issues on an anglo concertina. It's my main G/A button on the left hand side 1st row. Not every time but often I will have it stay depressed or stuck in while I switch bellows or to another note with another button. I believe my issue is on the bushings under the fretboard; either where the button's guide pin enters the action board or where the lever arm goes through the button. I've seen/had instructions to use a paint brush with a tapered end to help get things centered straight and to avoid it getting caught up on anything; but the more I play around with it the less I'm sure of where I need to be making my adjustments. I've taken a photo and attached here. I really feel like my issue is more around the guide pin part where the bottom of the button has the red bushing that connects with the action board. I don't see how the lever arm going through the button with the bushings on either side would cause the button to stay depressed after I let go. The problem is practically non existant when I separate the action board from the bellows. Also when I remove the fretboard and allow the buttons to move around freely a few degrees either way; I don't seem to see where it's getting stuck. It mainly only happens when everything is back together and I'm trying to play. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
