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 place to work with

I wanted to put a better tuning system on my Dulcimer. I called Folkcraft and the owner answered right away. I gave him an outline of what I wanted and he recommended the things I would need to accomplish this. I placed an order and the parts arrived in a very timely fashion. I asked for advice on mounting the parts and his suggestions worked out perfect. The project came out excellent and I am a happy guy now.

FolkCraft Chrome Button Tuners

I installed these on a customers dulcimer that previously had friction tuners. I had a few questions about the conversion, and Richard was very helpful answereing my questions. I was impressed with the overall quality of the tuners and the conversion went without a hitch. Thanks, Richard for the info and a great quality product at a very reasonable price. -Daniel
