Questions - Installing Trem Stud Inserts

Getting an aftermarket body that's routed for a Lo Pro Edge. I have two questions about installing the trem stud inserts:

1. Do I use glue, or just press them in dry? If glue, what brand/kind?

2. I don't have access to a drill press. Is it okay to hammer them in? Obviously, I'll be very careful and use a wood block, but let me know if there are any tips or tricks to doing this properly.

That's it! Thanks in advance.

Tapping them in works great....... a little titebond wood glue goes a long way!!

Be sure to inspect the bores thoroughly before installing the inserts. You wouldn't believe how often the bores are out of round or have cracks between them and the block cavity.

Re: Questions - Installing Trem Stud Inserts

Thanks for the advice. I also just happened to find another thread here where someone asked a very similar question. Forum search fail on my part

Seems like a bit of glue might also act as lube... to help them slide in easier.

Wow, that got weird...

LMAO!!!! nothing wrong with a little lube now and then, but real men go at it dry!!!!!

Anyway, you'll see a small hole at the bottom side of the insert. only use enough glue to get a little in the hole. when it dries, it will act like a lock for the insert. If you use too much, it will act like a lock on the stud....... not good.

I hope not, the anchor is only 11.04mm OD. IIRC, the bore had to be like 10.75mm (27/64") to get a good tight fit. Of course with more lube...........
