Folkcraft® Machine Heads, Open Gear, Chrome Button, Four Pack

Item Number 2340084

Regular price $23.00

These open-gear tuners have a 14:1 gearing ratio and a small chrome button. The post is just a hair over 1" long, and has a diameter of .236", which means it fits perfectly in a 1/4" hole. The post has two holes in it. The first hole is approximately 1/2" from the inside of the plate, and the second hole is approximately 7/8" from the inside of the plate. The machine heads can be used for either vertical (with a scroll head) or horizontal (with a flat head) mounting.

At Folkcraft Instruments, this open gear chrome button machine head is our preferred choice for the instruments we build with scroll heads. We generally do not use the bushings that are included with these dulcimer tuning gears.

Quality work for a reasonible price

My eyes are failing a bit ,and fretting a fingerboard is rather daunting. Yours is of top quality in both fit and finish, with a fair price also. I will be happy to purchase another when I start my next instrument. I do prefer a bit finer finish than you provided, but that does not mean your sanding was faulty. 'chacun a son gout' JF

Quality products

Everything arrived in a timely fashion. All materials appear to be of good quality. I would rate a 5. I am currently working on a mountain dulcimer project and can’t wait to finish it.

Great Machine Heads

I bought these to replace some heads that were very stiff and these are great. Very smooth operation, easy to tune with and they stay in tune. I liked these so much the first time I bought them that I bought them for another dulcimer too.

We replaced old wooden pegs with these metal open gear tuners. The replacement process was very easy and the new gears work well. Happy with the purchase and product. SN
