Talking about some simple buildings and the Crow's model, I found this great video from http://mechanicalmashup.tv/episodes/episode-12-diy-cigar-box-guitar/ demonstrating how to build a simple cigar box guitar with simple tuners. Enjoy !

at 04:31 you can see the nuts on the eye bolts are some special locking nuts ! Here is THE SECRET !
if you don't have one you replace by wing nut + a normal nut to lock it, that will require you a longer
eye bolt.

Hi Keni and all, I made a lot of tests in hope to find replacement solution for expensive tuners ;
you can check one of my photo albums where I demonstrate the best one I made. It has been a long
road made of trials and errors but my version is working great. Though it may not be easy to tune and
retune a guitar between two songs on stage, my version is strong enough to keep the tuning. That's why I posted this video too, because this guy is the only I found that made something looking strong enough and also demonstrating how to make it. Of course there are Crow's videos too but the difference here is the video demonstrate the whole building of a guitar with a pass-through neck, so I thought it was important to share :D

Recorded acoustically? Nice video. I would of liked to hear more about the simple homemade tuners. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy.
