Thanks Daniel. I like the vintage look of those Rubner tuners but I decided to stick with ordering the Waverlys because of their long history and familiarity.
Thanks Bert for the tip on Schallers and Gotohs. I asked the person who is building my resonator guitar about the Gotohs, and he couldn’t find the SXB510.
Thanks to both for your opinions on the need to lubricate or not. Since there was a slight difference of opinion, I gave the “Mother Ship” a call. Carolyn said that they recommend using Tri-Flow oil, but only when the gears feel a little hard to turn.
