the high E (1st string) string's tuning peg spins back to D #. They are quality tuning pegs (Gotoh). I don't see any way to tighten the peg. Is there a way to tighten them? What's up here?

Gotoh tuners have a screw in the top of the button. Tightening that usually solves the problem.

Thank you. I was thinking that screw just held the knob on. And when I flipped the banjo over and tried tightening it, I was tightening the opposite one. No wonder nothing was happening to the 1st string. Never cease to amaze myself.

It's nice to know I'm not alone.
