Tuning - 
With Accordion Completely Assembled - Tuning Test to obtain signature of current tuning of the Accordion.   This signature consists of a chart providing the initial tuning of all reeds (bellows inward and bellows outward).
Accordion is disassembled and tuning of reeds is corrected.  Scratching/ filing methodology is utilized to correct the tuning.
Accordion is Reassembled and another signature is taken to verify the correctness of the tuning.
If necessary the accordion may be disassembled again if further tuning correction is required.
