    After speaking with Toasted on MSN, we came to the conclusion that hacking the feet off of pedals with large knives is fun :smug:

    But really, what I'm asking about is what to do about the feet on the 105Q Wah. Now we all know they are screwed in, and taking the feet off and putting the screws back in leaves the base plate loose.

    So basically I was thinking of just taking the screws out altogether and taping the plate on to the pedal. I was just wondering if there were any more efficient yet not resale-value-decreasing options I could take?

    Cheers in advance.
     
  2. use shorter screws so that they tighten up all the way? I've not tried this, but seems reasonable to me.

    Hmm yeah, I did have a little discussion with my dad about this...I was thinking of doing it, but then when I thought of taping the base the idea completely left me, thanks for the reminder.

    .. And use plenty of it :D

    Seriously, this is what I will do when i'm going to feet-cut all my pedals. Hate the way they build the wah with them screws :scowl:
     
  5. I've just put velcros under mine yesterday and I had to take off the feets, put 2 washers (flat metal rings) between the pedal and the plate and then screw it in place.

    The plate is now a little off from the pedal but as I'm writting, I am thinking of putting the washers between the screw and the plate instead of between the pedal and the plate.

    Am I clear enough?

    +1 for shorter screws that's what I did
