    Also a new tip. They're cheap. A new one will usually stay on as long as it's left in place. Pop it off once and it'll never stay on again.

    Jeez, just buy a replacement tip, as it seems like the tip female end is enlarged. Around $8-10.

    Tele purists should skip this solution...I took a different approach since I didn't like the front/back motion - if the tip falls off just screw another one on 62579404801__EBA666D7-38B0-4CA5-8501-3606196373E3.JPG

    Some really good Ideas here. Most of mine are naturally really tight, but the ones that slip off a little too easy I put a little brown glue on the blade. Keeps it in place but detatches from the metal easy enough when you want to take it off.

    Rutters machined and knurled steel. So satisfying solid 'thunk' when you switch positions. IMG_4040.jpg
