I have used pencil graphite for tight stems along with sandpaper, and for loose stems I put clear nail polish on it, works well. The violin product is a great idea.

I hadn't thought of that. For those with girlfriends and wives, easy enough to find such things--looks like I gotta go to the bargain beauty section of Wal-Mart. Laughing

I have a pair of very, very long and skinny needle nose pliers. They work fantastic for stem widening when gentle heat is applied, as the angle of width is extremely narrow. They have a better chance of widening the tenon overall, rather than just at the tip--which can cause stem "rocking" when all is said and done.

Other guys use a sharpened pencil.

🤷 1,000 ways to fit a stem, I guess.
