Re: stripped locking nut.....

Ah! Yes I did notice wasn't a big deal though, I just held the pads down with my fingers as I was tightening them.
I looked up close when using a 58 gauge string for the low B the standard 8mm one barely goes into the barely.
I didn't know which one would fit so I got both. 10mm fits perfectly!
Happy day

Re: stripped locking nut.....

It's more of a big deal when it's binding.

The 10mm will work on a 58, usually it won't on a 54, and definitely should not on a 009/011 pad.

Re: stripped locking nut.....

Great info + help as always Rich.
I'm going to message the monster bolts dude, maybe he can get half-threaded ones for the future. Will update if he can.
