    Reverse this, and the gears are pulled apart by string tension, so you end up with more backlash, and the tuners become looser and looser as time goes by. It might work for a while when the tuners are new, but with use, you’ll have three dodgy tuners quite quickly.
    Thanks Simon i appreciate the feedback, yea and i think the mop ends look too big, like a bass. Oh well back to the drawing board.

    You didn't fancy cutting one in half and sticking some other material on the back to make up the height?
