    Installing grover tuners, Help

    Personally I'm not sure how deep should i ream, you mention when i see the edge flush with the headstock, i should stop. how do i know when that happens, never seen the reamer in person. In which direction would you turn? And what's the purpose of tightening it? Is it a must?

    Yeah that's what everyone keeps saying. I'm sorta afraid of breaking the headstock. Is it really that easy? NO POWERTOOLS right?:shock:

    Installing grover tuners, Help

    So if you got your handle from sears, what did all the other guys use? So you're saying just turn it clockwise all the way in since it is safe? The link provided here from stewmac is the right bit right? Yeap on a gibson r8. Just using a screwdriver for this? Sounds scary:eek2:

    Installing grover tuners, Help

    Cool link, could you give me a link to where you got the handle? Preferably if it's available from stewmac. I checked with shears, handling charges costs are too high. Sorry but being new to this, Did you ream the hole all the way in? And After reaming it, what else did you do...

    Aging the bridge

    Btw does aging the bridge affect the tone of it? So many suggestions!

    Aging the bridge

    The lower the grade the higher the coarsing right? Why do you want to start with 12000 first to polish it out? Why not 8000? The micro mesh you talking about. Are they the same sold by stewmac?

    Aging the bridge

    Sounds like electrolysis. What kind of wire do you have in mind? When you mentioned moving the wire all over the bridge, it does have to be in the salted water right? Sounds a little non-natural to me. "Removing the nickle", all i want is to make it non-gloss.
