New tuners

  I have limited supplies of the new tuners listed below, and a varied supply of used period tuners.

There are a few modern tuners that can be used for either configuration, (side or back) but most CAN'T. For back-mounted tuners, the string hole needs to be near the top end of the barrel; for side mounted it needs to be near the middle. 

   Furthermore, there was no standardisation in size between tuners, so the existing tuners, or tuner holes need to be measured very carefully to ensure a correct fit.  If the fit is poor, or you need to widen the holes to fit a set, it is likely that strain will be put on the tuner barrels, which will bind against the cogs and jam, or jump the cog teeth, ruining the cog.

All these tuners and others like them will be cleaned and lubricated before they are sold. They are several examples of my stock, and others may be available if what is here does not  suit or is the wrong size. Again all appear to be fine, but this is said without stringing each one up. These are just examples, what I have may vary a lot.....
