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.

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

Very nice, but I prefer the chrome ones...

The bone colored one are very good, but I prefer the chrome ones. A bit more pricey, but worth it.

Folkcraft Machine Heads

We buy these in bulk, 60 packages at a time. The quality is consistently excellent, and on par with tuners that cost three times as much. We love dealing with Folkcraft!
