WD40 sa Truss rod?
« on: July 09, 2010, 02:46:07 PM »
Hey guys!

Medyo mahigpit kasi yung truss rod ng strat ko, plano ko sana spray- an ng WD40. Ok lang kaya yon? My bad effects ba ito?

And how much na rin nga pala WD40 ngayon kahit yung pinakamaliit lang?  :-D

i've read others using WD40 para sa truss rod na medyo mahigpit (assuming na hindi siya mahigpit dahil sagad na siya or overtightened na) with no problems.. so i guess it's safe to use.. i have a bottle here ng WD40 pero hindi siya yung pinakamaliit..

mine is 191mL for 139.75 petot sa handyman..  :-)

pero WD40 ain't really a lubricant.. it just displaces water.. so mas ok siguro na ang gamitin mo ay yung mga lubricant talaga.. siguro yung 3M lubricant? naka bottle din yun na spray eh.. dunno the price though.. yun ang gamit namin sa bike links pag makalawang na at parang ayaw na gumalaw..

better consult that to a luthier or a professional kung ayaw parin bro.. baka kasi sagad na siya sa higpit or what.. it may affect the fretboard in the long run kung talagang sobra yung WD40.. as i said, WD40 displaces water para maprevent ang pagrust ng isang bagay.. it can lubricate but it's not really a lubricant..

twist the truss rod kung kailangan.. pag maayos naman ang pagkakabow ng neck ng guitar, no need to play with the truss rod.. a good overall setup will do you well for your current settings (string gauge, action, etc..)..

ako, i've never messed with the truss rod of my guitar.. it was with me since 2008.. hindi pa naman ganun katagal, pero it's still a considerable length of time.. wala naman ako problema sa pagkakabow ng neck..

Tingin ko hindi pa naman sagad ang truss rod nitong guitar ko, kasi clockwise or counterclockwise na pihit masikip pa rin. Sana WD40 or any lubricant lang katapat nito.  :-)
