    What do you put on wooden pegs to make them work better?

    In a pinch, I have used violin rosin to stop the slipping.

    How manufacturers can encourage UAS

    I think you should really lean on the homebuilders. Stop all this nonsense about "guest rooms" and give the people what they really want - a ukulele wing !!!
