Recently picked up my first banjo, an old Kay K-52T. I’m missing a j hook (see pics) and none of the new hooks on the market look like they would fit. Any suggestions as to where to look before I post a wanted ad? Already tried Elderly and StewMac.

From what I hear and understand,
Bob Smakula is very much an expert when it comes to sourcing and having such things. I’d suggest you write him or check his website.
Please post the pictures directly to the forum page and I will let you know if I have what you need.
If Bob doesn't, I might but, like he, I'll need to see pictures.
I once sent a Kay nut to someone who needed it. Despite matching his in all measurements, the threading was different so it didn't fit.
I think I still have a nut or two, but may not have the hooks. I will look tomorrow when I'm actually awake, but not yet being hassled.
