Alright so after this exam i have next week im going to finish up this walnut build but first i need some guidance on how to properly install Threaded inserts. I have both the brass and the wider thread stainless steel. i tried on a piece of scrap wood that matches my neck wood, and it didnt end up so well using a T - driver so you can do it by hand. it went in fine but the sides of the wood started bulging. im guessing this is due to an inadequate pilot hole. im thinking of buying a drill press from harbor freight because thers a ton of things which i can use it for. i can finally drill truly 90 degree holes which will help this im sure. in the meantime, are there any other tips and tricks that i should know to make this all go smoother? the neck wood im using is Monterillo/tiger rosewood which is harder than most rosewoods from what i gather.
