New 5th string bone nut

Verified Buyer


You guys rock! Here’s a picture of the new 5th string bone nut that I just installed along with the old plastic one that blew out. Filing down the nut with the 0.010 nut slotting file worked like a charm.

Too-tight fit in a 1/8" hole

By

Verified Buyer


This was quite good, except it was just a teeny bit too large in diameter to fit a 1/8" hole. I measured it as 0.135" diameter.Of course, a little bit large is a whole lot better than a little too small. Ideally though I would have preferred a diameter of about 0.1252".

Just what I wanted.

I was given my Vega Regent banjo in 1962 by my step grandfather and it was missing a 5th string tuner and nut. I bought and installed the tuning peg and stuck a carpet tack into the hole for the 5th string nut and played it for a few years; it worked just fine. Fast forward to today as I brought it out of retirement and took it into the shop for some needed work. After getting it home I remembered the nut was still that 50+ year old carpet tack. I fouind Stewart McDonald on line and bought the proper nut. It was a bit tricky getting it installed but I managed and it works and looks just fine. I would have been happier if it already had the groove cut into it which is the only reason for not giving 5 stars. I'm glad I found you folks. You are a great resource. Thanks.
