It looks like they drilled and tapped a pair of ukulele pegs and machined two aluminum pieces for the cams. I always wanted to make my own D tuners. Now I have some ideas. Thanks, Paul.

Crude, but I was 16 in 1966.

None of these photos show them properly installed. The L-shaped pieces went between the wood and the first washer on the top side to limit the range of swing. (The rest was homemade, too.)

Thems a sharp set of d tuners! I made my own set about 10 years ago... very satisfying. Like you are walking down the same path as Earl did when he first set out to make his set!
