Yeah just grind the 'cap' down. Piece of p**s.

The threads on the Westone are 6mm. Anchor points are 8mm inserts.

These might work, but it would be a crapshoot. 6mm coarse thread sounds right.

That looks good.  WD is a great place, too. 

Hope this fixes you up!  You will love the Gotoh.  Absolute upgrade.

I assume the pivot is binding on the posts, yes? Now, that will be hardened steel in there, won't it? If you gring that out a little, won't you wear through the hardening? You certainly won't want the bearing surface to be soft!!

Thats's a great tip about hardening the freshly painted saddles in the oven, Damian!!

You'd just be grinding the bigger cap section of the post.
Not the actual 'waist section' contact point.

Yeah, just the screw head portion of the studs. There's not not enough room for the head because of where the saddles come up next to the knife edge on the Gotoh.

In any case, I'll keep that idea as a last resort. No sense in messing up a perfectly good component of a Bendmaster if someone else can use it. Shane P might have a lead on where I can find some 6mm studs from a local guy, if that falls through, I'll just order the WD Music one.
