Reducing Peghead Hole Sizes

Recommended Posts


I ordered some tuners and have had them sitting for some time, and have noticed they are not snug in the peghead holes. What methods are there to resolve this, as I have had trouble finding metal tubing to reduce the hole, as i live in a small town.

Thanks :D

Knowing the exact size of metal tubing needed would be the key and that would also go for making your own wood bushings (yes, I've seen pretty darn thin-walled ones made).

As for the small town thing, well, I'm in a fairly big town, but still purchase online at least 75% of the time, especially for something really specialized.

There's also "conversion bushings". Plug/redrill is an option, but serious potential disaster for someone inexperienced.

Digital calipers, a REAL help on a deal like this.

Oh yeah, forgot thin metal sheet, wrap/unwrap until correct thickness. Probably a better way to go if we're leaving digital calipers out.
