I just purchased a 100 th anniversary Kamaka Pineapple Soprano. Somehow, when I changed strings, the nut can actually come off. Is that supposed so? All my other Uke's nuts are all fixed to the neck.
Please help.

It's not a big deal, in fact most of the higher quality ukes have their nuts only lightly glued in or squeezed in. Ideally, once the strings have come off, one gentle sideway tick with a hard tool should be enough to dislodge it.

It's a piece that's supposed to transfer vibrations, and should be accessible for sanding or even replacement. String pressure normally is enough to keep it in place and prevent any rattles or buzzes!
