Fifth String Nut Replacement

Old nut fell apart. Couldn't get a grip on the old one to get it out. So I shaved the old nut flat on top using a razor blade. Then used a 1/16 drill bit and turned it with my fingers to slowly make a 1/4 deep hole into the center of the old nut. This allowed me to pull the old nut out with the drill bit. Put the new one in and used a SM Nut Slotting .013 file to make a slot (or you could put the slot in the new one before inserting it). First time and success!

I bought this and at 2 dollars its no real loss. However it doesn't fit the hole the old nut used to fit. Now i need to fill in the hole and redrill it the right size. Don't make the same mistake I did, measure the footprint of your hole first

Bone is the best as far as nuts, saddles and any thing that strings go over!

Bone pips (5th string banjo nuts) are great!

By

These are high quality, durable bone, pre-fabricated and of a consistent size - and that saves a lot of time when you go through these like I do. These are suitable for new construction and retro replacement situations. Keep it up Dan and Don!

Not so good

I like the railroad spikes better, no, not the ones behind your house, the little train set ones. ;)
