Thread: Can you use a threadless labret post on any stud?

  1. #1

    Default Can you use a threadless labret post on any stud?

    I would be able to save a lot of money if I could...

    If I'm not being clear, I mean put a regular stud "end" through the labret post.

    There is no reason you could not make an adaptation to achieve this. For example, if you are talking about 18g and 20g butterfly studs at 1mm and 0.8mm you could adapt the item below to receive them.

    However you would need fair specialist kit - eg a stable dril (pillar drill work work great, an absolutely minuscule drill bit and a vice/clamp very small).

    Alternatively there are other ways you hollow this out, but I would not consider them safe and wont describe: - serious accidents can ensue if you are applying serious force with a sharp object and you slip due to improper preparation. With a pillar drill you can apply gentle force with no danger.

    If you cannot find the equivalent for sale already i expect its because someone everywhere wants to make more money selling everything twice.

    Overall its far more hassle than its worth unless you have the tools already.

    EDIT:

    Well gosh, you could always use these instead:

    Why? The threadless system works fine as long as you use compatible items. I wouldn't go trying to adapt things.

    Gotta agree with Hazel. If you're unsure you could be successful bending the studs to fit in those tubes, just buy everything again instead under the new system, its no good if wreck everything you had already.


    How large is your current piercing jewellery collection at the moment ? It may be that you're trying to find ways to adapt a small collection to this new idea and you'd be better off abandoning your current collection to special occasions and start from scratch for daily wear.

    idk how i'd classify it. i have a decent amount of earrings, but i don't wear any of them because the metal irritates me. so i haven't bought a pair of earrings for a couple years actually (except for expensive white gold ones for a special event).
    when i wrote this post, i was actually planning on buying a pair of studs i liked and modifying them to use a labret back - because i like the labret backs. an added bonus would be that i could then modify my other studs too.
