    I am thinking of installing adjustable screws on my bridge. Does anyone have some tips on that subject?

    Thanks

    Do you own a drill press?

    What size adjusters do you have?

    The wheel is a little bit more than an inch. The screw is about 1/4 of an inch. The screw part is one inch long.
