    Shoulder bolts

    For lack of a better word I will call them shoulder bolts. I was just wondering what you call the four bolt things on the shoulders, and where I can get them? Also how do they attach?

    Re: Shoulder bolts

    You can do 1 of two things :

    1. basic computer keyboard keys ( any letter you like ) attached with bolt and screw method
    2. "furniture buffers " rubbery type found at any home improvement center. - I used these since they have a sticky bottom, with a little dab o' super glue. the only problem with these is that if you push down on them the paint chips. I might go with the keys later on

    Im not sure which are more accurate, but ive seen both methods around the board.
    hope this helps

    DPR,
    Computer keys?? That has the be the best idea I've ever heard for shoulder/collar bolts! I never would've thought of that!

    And to think, I have a spare keyboard in my home office!

    I agree about the furniture buffers. They look okay painted, but they scuff too easy, revealing the clear plastic beneath. They work okay, but not as good as machined aluminum ones or...computer keys! (I have GOT to try this next time!)

    Yup,


    Try Rodann. I have a set of the machined ones he made and they are awesome!

    Using keyboard keys is a good idea.. I never thought of that also! I am using the machined aluminum ones which I scored on eBay a while back.
