I posted to a mailing list of friends:

And got the following reply:
Hey Glenn... Want a pedal harp? -Bob, it's only a harp, how many pieces could it have? ;-) ;-) P.S. And if you get that done, here's a harpsichord... but don't worry, it's already assembled, just needs adjusting...
Which elicited from Jane, this:
AHEM! Bob!!! Don't encourage him. It was _my_ saxophone. --Jane
Okay, so I'm easily amused.
Postscript: I did get the sax back together correectly (what an adventure that was!) but my repair didn't quite work, so Jane wound up having it fixed by a pro after all. But I did correctly re-assemble it!
