A visit to a local hardware store yielded a suitable solution. I took the banjo with me to the store, much to the amusement of the staff. After consulting with a helpful hardware guy, I found something that fit the bolts snuggly.When I arrived at home I hammered these caps onto the bolts and completed the conversion. As a bonus, minus the resonator cover it's a lighter banjo.

Thats alright & looks to do nicely. I can,t remember the last time I saw a banjo at the hardware store, did any employee ask you to hammer down awnit?

The young staff was amused, but no one requested me to play the banjo. Just as well -- I'm not any good on it yet.
