Howdy, all. "New Guy" needs Bendmaster Deluxe Trem parts!!

Post by Erich0316 on Sun Feb 14, 2016 7:32 pm

Great forum, by the way. I need to surprise a good friend with some small parts for his Westone. I need the locking blocks for the locking nut (all three) in chrome and 3 fine tuners for the Bendmaster Deluxe. Anyone know where I can get them? Thanks!!!!!!!!!

G'day there...

The locking blocks were only ever in black OEM and the ones that you can get by PM'ing  Sgt Vimes are bare metal. You will also need 1mm shims under the strings to stop the stringlock base acting as a guillotine! We tend to make our own out of 1mm steel strapping or similar; not hard, just fiddly.

Fine tuners are an orphan and nothing else readily available will fit; 6mm Allen headed bolts will serve until you can get some from eBay or any of the other auction sites! I had a modelkler friend make up some personalised caps out of hand cast pewter for the Allen bolts which look really good!

After a couple of hours searching for "stuff" I understand. Thanks so much for the reply and I will work on fabricating the fine tuners. I have a machine shop I can use (and I actually know how, a little haha), My friend is a Westone fan (big time) and I think I'm going to have to get used to the fabrication part if I keep tinkering with his guitars. I appreciate the guidance and I'll see you back on the "boards".....

The fine tuner screws are M4 (4mm) thread and the head can be no bigger tham 9mm dia. 

As corsair says above,  I have the reproduction clamp bits,  send a pm and we'll sort you out,  no probs.
