Turnbuckle Bolt as a Bridge (left-handed thread)

Turnbuckles come with two bolts. I have several that have eye-bolts, but other bolts are available. One of the bolts has left-handed threads. It works well as a bridge, since the angle of the threads lines up with the angle on the bridge. I've had problems with right-handed bolts where I need to files grooves in the spots where the strings should be to keep them in place.

  • Wow, you’re talking about a problem I’ve had with the bolts for 25 years!  The threads always were at the wrong angle.  I gotta try this!  -Shane
