Derek, I don't think the exposed threads are even an issue. I mean when you back off on one to tune a pedal up or down you're exposing threads. If they were all cranked all the way down how would you ...

Well for tuning accuracy 40 would be better. I want people to know there's no problem with 5-40 if you use a Cutting Die and not a re-threading die.
Edited: you're using a lathe & all. I'm just t ...

I had read in some older posts that it was very difficult to hand thread #5-40 threads onto 1/8 (.126") rod to screw on a nylon tuning nut. In fact it was suggested to try #6-40 instead, if threa ...

Aha! If I switch the raises to RKR and the lowers to RKL I'll have all kinds of room. This will work. I haven't employed these enough for it to be ingrained one way or another. I don't see any ergonom ...

I'd say it'd be easiest to learn the 10 first if that's what you want to play. For one thing there are triads going up the strings that are different inversions of the same chord(the notes are just fl ...
