Attaching the Tuning Pegs
I shoved the metal rods into the top of the tuning pegs. I then tied some old string that we had in the garage to the other end of the tuning pegs. I shoved the tuning pegs into the holes that Dad drilled into the neck. I had to pound them with a hammer. Then I tied the other end of the string to the little pegs for the bottom of the banjo. I shoved them in the holes at the bottom and had to pound them in with a hammer. Then I used the metal rods on the tuning pegs to tighten up the string.
