I have a vintage firebird from 67 and the tuners are giving me a tough time. The original tuner holes must have been drilled, slightly off because with the tuners out of the headstock, they are smooth and easy to turn. When I put them in the headstock, the become extremely tight and very hard to turn. The tuners are Kluson 6 on a plate so they have to all go on at the same time. You can tell that the holes are off because, in order to push them into the headstock, it requires a firm push and does not easily slide into the bushings. Any tips to increase the diameter inside of the bushing? I thought about using a drill bit that was a hair larger than the posts, but all of the bits I have are much larger than what is needed. Any ideas are appreciated!
