    You're not in the midwest here cowboy, you're on a forum where people respect each other.

    LOL, that's a bit overkill, but I guess you already had a tube. Does it dry up to lock up the part ?

    I moved the post to the original tips thread.

    It never dries, the surface tension of the thick grease keeps the parts from vibrating.

    OK, here is one that will make You say huh unless you try it.

    take your multimeter or continuity tester and put aligator test leads clip to each conductor, clip the other end to the tuning peg or string, and the other to the feeler gauge you chose for measuring. when the meter or tester lights or sounds you are there.
    I know it's coming "that's what a feeler gauge does, it "feels"
    You would be surprised to find the difference.
    I was off on the too high side by 2 thousands.
    Now, it's all good.

    You might want to go just a smidge higher or leave it
    where it just conducts...

    When setting the truss rod, it's supposed to touch the .010" feeler gauge and just pass through....

    With your method you're setting it 2-3 thousandths of an inch more because it's not touching....

    No it is not higher or lower at all, when the meter or tester sounds or lights, those are the signals that the feeler gauge is indeed touching.

    Exactly...and it's supposed to touch, so I don't understand how this method helps more than the normal way....

    OK, just leave my posts alone and do not say I said something that I didn't!

    "When setting the truss rod, it's supposed to touch the .010" feeler gauge and just pass through....

    Yes....you're saying that you want the meter to not light up or sound off....so you don't want it touching.....I have learning disabilities, so I've asked 2-3 times for you to clarify please....

    Are you saying you WANT the meter to show continuity?

    Why?? I thought you were my buddy....like everyone here :)

    I didn't understand. I didn't single you out for any reason. I was genuinely interested in understanding and learning your method and I'm going to use it from now on! I think it's awesome that you started this helpful thread too! Thank you!!

    He predicted your reply:
    It is the normal way; it just substitutes an electronic sensor for what might be dull, aging, or compromised human senses.

    I'm gonna remember this one, for when I get old.

    Been doing it that way for a few years, I learned a few things from a really good electrician. ( i got ridiculed on another post by one of these same players, Sheesh!!! )


    Yes, I did anticipate the reply, coming from 3 people on my very, very recent no- contact list.
    What a shame!
    Hope the good folks can see past all that.
