So I found a stupid good deal on an axe but the trussrod nut is stripped. Stewmac sells a tool specifically for this for $10 and I was curious if anyone has any experience on if it works as it's supposed to.
STEWMAC.COM : Issue 83, Bad news: a stripped truss rod nut. Good news: an easy solution.
Well it may work if the nut is just rounded out from someone using the wrong sized wrench, but it makes me wonder if the rod itself may have seized up and the nut got rounded from someone trying to force it. Worth a shot I suppose.
