Headstock and Machines
The tuning machines consist of a post and gear plate assembly and a bushing:
This might be the third fiberboard template I've made to determine the tuning machine hole spacing; I don't want to make a mistake when drilling big holes in the mahogany head stock. I drilled 11/16" holes in the template, then pressed in the bushings using a vise.
Holes drilled. Head stock shaped at the nut using a 1 1/2" Forstner bit.
