    The nut is the twisty part that tightens or loosens the bow hair.

    thanks! this confirms what I thought it was...

    I haven´t heard the term "beinchen" yet though.

    according to simandl (#14 on his diagram of the parts of the DB & bow) this would be "schraube" or "knopf".-..

    "schraube" or "bogenschraube" is bassist-speech
    "beinchen" is rather luthier-speech
