regulating my piano

Although the standard of my piano playing is not great, I am easily irritated by imperfections in the mechanics of my piano eg a hint of double hitting.

There is a temptation to buy some tools and try some diy regulating. 

Advice from anyone who has done this would be welcome.

 

RE: regulating my piano

You should consider purchasing Arthur Reblitz's "Piano Servicing, Tuning and Rebuilding, Second Edition: For the Professional, the Student, and the Hobbyist" for information on the the care and maintenance of the piano. I would add to that, however, a small piece of advice before you proceed with any work on the piano's action: Hire a professional.  The mechanism is intricate and manufactured within very small tolerances.  Any adjustment made to one part will affect others and even a small miscalculation could render the instrument unplayable or cause subtler problems that may require a costly intervention down the road.  You should consult with a certified piano technician before you take any action (no pun intended!) to learn from him (or her) what kind of work, if any, you can safely do on your own .
