Bob, i am not aware of anyone using those tnuts.
By looking at it i can assume that the process of installing them is much longer then simply hammering the tnut.


I used the same ones that Bob mentioned, on my 728's.
They are simple to install, and IMO perfect for the job.

I removed my handle, drilled the holes, put the t-nut in, put the caster in position and dropped the bolt through....painless.
FYI, the wheels have been on for somewhere around 7 years....not a single issue with one coming loose or anything.

To be fair, they are not going to come loose with a bolt holding them in (at least I hope not )…..

I have bolts in my neck and head. Be CAREFUL when you pull the driver, and you should point JBL Sam to this link.

I'm wondering how Im going to actually pull it out as I can't get behind it to  push from behind…

Sam had asked if it would be easier pulling the amp and going in through there but again there is nothing to hold on to.

I quit using standard T-nuts in my cabinets several years ago. I've had really good luck with "hurricane" nuts, but you have to drill a clean hole. If you do it properly you can hammer them in or pull them through. I know some people don't like these, and I do like the ones that were posted earlier. I do use baltic birch, which definitely grips these things better than other types of wood.

+1 on square-drive, but I have had difficulties finding some of the screws that I prefer to use with square-drive heads.

I would hand press it into the hole to get the barbs started, then gently thread a capscrew or bolt with a large washer from the outside until it's snug.  Then slowly pull the t-nut into the wood with the bolt until it's made an impression with the entire flange.  That's how I put all my t-nuts in.  I might be able to give them a whack with a hammer to get them started but pulling with a bolt keeps things straight and ensures that it's fully seated.

You're referring to the speaker?  Try gently slipping a putty knife under the gasket.  They should still be pliable, since the cab is new.  Once you get one edge up, shim it and pry the other side with the putty knife.  Eventually, you should have enough frame edge to grab onto.

Yes- no banging in the T Nut that close to the amp and circuitry so Ill need to be gentle and firm...

Good suggestion Dave…. I gots me plenty of shims so I should be able to work my way around raising the flange as I go.

Yes, but we call braces suspenders. So over here it would be "belt and suspenders". BTW what you call suspenders are called garters here.

Garters hold your socks up.  I have never seen those in actual use.  When I am doing manual labor nothing beats a loose fitting pair of carpenters jeans and Carhart Braces.  I have heard the term "belts and braces" used by more than just UK friends.  I think you would be hard pressed to find anyone under 40 familiar. 

Goes with "carter has bills (who is this Carter guy??? It was Carter's liver pills!) and In like Flynn !"
