4 string tuners space and alignment - the mandolin tuner solution.

So how to fit them.First up I took it apart and drew a freehand copy of the 70s Japanese copy of a 60s Fender headstock.

"I would cut the plate on one side of the screw hole (3 maybe 4 cuts) with a jeweller’s saw and bend the assembly. You are correct in stretching one side with a hammer but this will only get you so far. Best of luck fitting this on your moon…"

"I would just sets of 6 inline individual tuners and have 2 left over for another build. 2 sets of those tuners would cover 3 builds."

Real good job on that banjo uke Titch! Hope to hear how she sounds. All the ones I've made with that pete plastic are surprisingly loud!

Hey Titch,

I just watched all your video. Which is a major feat due to my limited attention span.

All your builds are very clever and you play and sing well too.

Keep building and posting
