Okay, I know about electrosockets, have 'em in other guitars. But I have an old standard cup for a project that will not stay put. Am I supposed to press fit it, and how.

Hurry, I'm on the verge of having a great guitar. please help me, please:cry:

I purchased this special tool from Stew-Mac. It's a bit expensive for one project but good to have if you plan many. It will also remove the retainer clip.


Instructions are found here (http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Tools/Special_tools_for:_Electronics/1/Tele_Jack_Ferrule_Clip_Installation_Tool/Instructions/I-4321.html#details)

Here's a link to a previous thread that show's Ole Fuzzy's homemade jack cup tool.
