Looking for a cheap(ish) source for planetary style tuners. Not the friction peg style, actual geared tuners that aren't 90 degrees. Need 4. Any clues?

Scrounge a piece of metal and drill some holes in it.

Comment by Where's Uranus? on January 7, 2017 at 9:35pm

Anyone got suggestions for a cheap control plate? 

Looking for something that can hold 3 knobs and a jack, preferably metal.
