Bridge Fine tuners

Post by bigwelly2000 on Thu May 30, 2013 7:29 am

Anybody know where I can obtain some bridge fine tuner bolts for my Spectrum SX? Plenty of FR screws available out there but all wrong length/thread! UK supplier preferably.

me too please, needs to be a M4 thumbscrew with 16mm shaft and a max of 9mm cap. I'm just using the M4 allen bolts for now, a very temporary solution, 12mm just isn't long enough....no drop D tunings here Sad

Gonna try and call in at Bradford Bolt & Nut company next week - I'll update accordingly. Got an old 80's Encore with similar set of tuners, but they seem to be even rarer!

I know we would rather have a Uk supplier for obvious reasons, but if your search turns out as fruitless as mine was, our good friend Iceman provided this link http://www.unicorpinc.com/metric_thumbscrews_plain_type_M3000.htm

I didnt order any yet, to be honest I got a little lost on the site through its rather arcane ordering methods.

see my thread here

do shout out if you find some this side of the pond though mate.

Wow - see what you mean - that is sooo difficult to navigate! Think I'll show the counter man at BN&B first!

Well, I think I may have found something, but my IE isn't translating, and my French isn't that good - anyone help http://www.legallais.com/quincaillerie-detail/vis-metaux-tete-moletee-laiton-chrome/9164.html

10 in a bag, 20mm long, euros 18.28

Not cheap, I'd personally be happy with allen bolts.
