I'm sure I just answered my own question about tuners, but I am going to ask anyway. I have yet to build my 1st CBG, and I am getting my supplies together. I have been wondering if the economy tuners from CB Gitty will work for me. I am a guitar player and know first hand what its like to play with tuners that fall out of tune. I could step up to Hipshot tuners but by the time I do this, I will have more wrapped up in tuner costs that the guitar itself. So, what kind of experiences have you all had with these tuners and would you be able to recommend them or  a better option. Thanx to you all.

Thank you Jerry, good information, I will keep this in mind. happy leveling and G Day !

Hey Wizzo, I do not make guitars for sale. I do however make soap cutters. The wires are tightened using guitar tuners. Imagine if you will a giant egg slicer, my latest one went to South Africa. I buy my tuners in bulk from China. Anyway, if you want to improve the quality of your inexpensive tuners you remove the gear and repress it onto the shaft. You can find a tutorial for this on page 47 (I think)  of the Ray Jacobs free downloadable book " making a Ray Jacobs Rocky Mountain dulcimer" . This is printed by handprint press.com. You can easily find it by searching "make a ray Jacobs Rocky Mountain dulcimer" it will be the first one at the top of the page. Yes it is a good read. Hope this helps! Would love to see you first build!!! 

Page 42 and here's a link to the download if anyone's interested.
