repair advice needed: fixation of metal in wood
Hello building&repairing gurus,
I bought a guitar with a floyd rose off a japanese auction. It turned out to be loosely modded. The older type 1-piece mounting stud that was screwed directly into the wood was replaced with a 2-piece item (as in the pic attached, part F replaced with parts D&E).
The mounting stud insert (part E) is supposed to be fixed in the body wood, but actually isn't as the holes are just a bit wide, and , when using the tremelo, string tension pulls them out of the wood.
Other than filling the holes altogether and redrilling them, what should I use to glue the part? Epoxy with wood dust? Please don't use trade names if possible as they could differ in this country.
Fill and redrill is the best way.
If you can't be bothered with that dip a couple of matchsticks in PVA wood glue and drop them in. Then screw the part in. You should end up with mashed up matchstick and glue setting to fill the gap.
To repeat. It's probably best to just fill and drill. Can't see that it's that difficult.:)
you usually get holes that are squished forward from string tension; wood glue all around and strips of thin wood veneer in front of the bushing, so that the bushing is pushed back upright and fits tightly in the hole, should do the trick.
thanks! will do
