Violin - Viola Bronze Eyelets

Violin Bronze Eyelets in Standard 5-40 thread as well as unthreaded. Made by Paulus GmbH in Germany.

When reading the descriptions in our product offerings the shank diameter refers to the size of the stem of bronze that one fits into the frog body. These shanks are finely threaded and are 3 mm for the standard and 3.5 mm for the heavy duty. When an eyelet is not fitting tight in the frog body from years of use (wood threads are stripped) then folks usually upgrade the eyelet to the 3.5 mm stem for added grip.

The 5-40 thread refers to the thread in the hole that the standard 5-40 screw goes into. The unthreaded eyelets simply have no threads in the hole. These are for makers who are tapping their own eyelets to their desired thread other than the 5-40.

Bronze is much stronger and more corrosion resistant than brass. Also, bronze is harder and more abrasion resistant than brass. Linked with stainless steel screws, these screw sets will last many years.
