This is a no-brainer idea. Drill a hole, use a drop of super glue, insert the rod, wait a minute, use a sheet-rock knife for cutoff and trimming, and you're done...perfect job!

Simple but right

Almost felt silly about ordering a plastic rod, but it did the job perfectly. Just needed to add 3 dots to a tricone restoration, these are perfectly and consistently sized. Cut pretty easily with a razor, and also seemed to 'chip out' nicely when leveled, as opposed to distorting or bending.

Small extruded rods good for at least two necks. I am new to neck work and was impressed with how good this looked on first try with the StewMac maple binding. I used a zero-kerf hobby blade to cut, Super glue and no filler. Light sanding and done - easy!!

These little sticks go a long way!

A buck a strip and I get maybe 5 necks out of 1. But value is not really a value unless there is a certain level of quality that goes with it. I've used both sizes and colors, they all fit the stated hole size perfectly, no problem. Drill my holes first, put a drop of medium CA glue on a plastic lid and GO! dip the end a tad in the glue and it lubricates its way to the bottom of the hole. Trim long with a razor, cutters deform the material and then wont go into the next hole without dressing, then sand flat to the freboard. Easy-breezy.
