Each set includes a pair of 3-left/3-right tuning machines with mounting screws.
Peghole spacing: Plate-mounted tuners can't work efficiently if the pegholes are improperly aligned. Our Tuning Machine Drill Jig for Slotted Pegheads ensures the correct 1-3/8" string roller spacing for accurate tuning.
Mounting screws: Pilot holes required. Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1712 Depth-stop Drill Bit (5/64" bit) for the pilot hole before installing these screws. Lubricate the screw threads with cutting lubricant (also wax or a bar of soap) to reduce friction and help them thread properly.
