Re: How to set trem arm to STAY WHERE I WANT?
I've found the tolerances in the bars themselves are not that precise. Some bars have a tighter fit than others.
I also use the heated bushing method. First of all - TAKE THE BUSHES OFF THE BAR! Heating the bar itself will weaken it. Heat the bushes over a gas flame for 5-10 seconds, cool them down, see how they fit and repeat if necessary. If you can see the shape of the bushes distorting then you've probably overheated them and the arm will no longer fit. Make sure you've got a bag of spares before you start!
