I got the tele body all wire up and ready for the neck..... ordered a new reamer to open the peg holes for the new Fender locking tuners. It came after a week and a half (can you believe not ONE locally at any hardware store) got the holes teamed out.....marked the small holes and drilled em out. Put the first 3 tuners in just fine..... 4th one SNAP! 100% my fault.... Fender really needs a small "test" piece with each of those sets. You cannot tell if you have it reamed out enough because the little nubs keep the tuner from dropping all the way in, but you can't really drill out for the nubs unless you have the tuner set in. I would gladly pay an extra 5 bucks to have a small piece tapered just like the tuners so that you know you have the holes right. I have a call in to Sweetwater to see if I can purchase just one tuner. I tried to draw it into the hole by tightening it. I didn't think I was drawing it THAT tight but apparently I was.
