(CRD02) Banjo co-ordinator rod set, nickel plated,

(CRD02) Banjo co-ordinator rod set, nickel plated, "Gibson" type - 20.00

This is a pair of co-ordinator rods designed for an 11" x ¾" thick "Gibson Mastertone" cast one-piece flange style banjo rim. They really don't work at all well with other types of rim, especially "tube & plate" styles.


This is set of 2 rods; the upper rod is shorter than the lower once the long nut has been fitted to it ; before that, they look much the same but you can't mix them up as the lower rod has both ends externally threaded.

(LB01) Banjo neck-fixing LAGBOLT M6 x 40mm

(LB01) Banjo neck-fixing LAGBOLT M6 x 40mm - 1.00

This is the metal fitting that connects a banjo neck to its rim. It has a machine-screw thread at one end and a woodscrew thread at the other - it's sometimes called a "wood-to-metal" dowel.


The woodscrew-threaded end is screwed into the heel of the neck and the machine-screw-threaded passes through a hole in the rim. An internally-threaded co-ordinator rod can be fitted to the protruding end of the lagbolt with a suitable thrust washer to stop the end of the rod eating into the rim


Whilst you can secure this lagbolt without a co-ordinator rod (just using a simple hex nut), the next listing down this page is for a fitting with a decorative dome nut which looks nicer and is more commonly used for fixings without a co-ordinator rod


Here are the details and dimensions of this lagbolt - 40mm long, 15mm of which is threaded M6 x 1.0 pitch and 25mm of which has a #14 (approx) woodscrew thread


The lagbolt is supplied with 2 x M6 hex nuts (which you can lock together to drive the lagbolt into a pre-drilled pilot hole in the heel of the neck) and 2 different M6 thrust washers (12mm & 18mm O.D. respectively).
