Bolt-on screws

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by bassteban, Jan 25, 2005.

  1. I posted a similiar question in EUB; maybe someone over here can help. What screws does anyone use to attach their necks? I'm also looking for washers that would accept countersunk screws. Thanks, & mods, if this is a double post please just go ahead & delete or move it.
  2. I use stainless steel 10-24 oval head machine bolts with the lengths cut to match to depth of the holes. The washers you want are called "cup" washers or "finish" washers and they are usually found in the better hardware stores. In Home Depot, that would be the drawers... :meh: The oval heads will also work with stock neck plates and the StewMac ferrules. You can also get all of these in brass.
  3. Thanks, mon.
