Guitar tuning knobs replaced by sugru [Permalink]

This is just a quick post...

I don't really play my guitar, I'd like to learn how to play it properly. To get to that stage I need to be able to tune it. Tuning was really awkward after two of the tuning knobs fell appart. It was a cheap guitar and the quality of the plastic knobs reflects that.

The solution was to drill a hole through each shaft that no longer had a knob, but a bolt through it, make sure it's nice and tight and then encase it in sugru.

It was fairly easy drilling the holes. I don't know what the shafts are made from but it didn't take too long.

After that, the bolts went in...

Then it was simply a case of sugruing and leaving it overnight. Job done!
