henrycat's photos: The "solution"


I needed to make a structural change to my Lab Rat Strat. I got this idea off YouTube. It's a screw with the head cut off and two nuts locked near the middle. The third smaller nut was my idea. A threaded insert is screwed into one end and the other end is placed in the chuck of a drill press. You then use a wrench to drive the insert into the pre-drilled hole in the neck. This ensures that the insert is square to neck surface and will accept the threaded machine screws perfectly. Works Great!
