Just wanted to share a good experience I had with fixing a little broken tuner screw. A little background- I have a bass with the sealed mini Gotoh tuners, and as you probably know, the single screw on these tuners is crucial, as it prevents the tuner from loosening or twisting when you are tuning the string. I've been carrying the bass in my car to lessons, and I'm sure that I must have banged the headstock or tuner knob against something because when I went to check my tuning tonight, I noticed that one of the screws was snapped off and the tuner was twisted at an angle to the others. Huge bummer, especially since tonight was my night to practice. Anyway, here's how I fixed the whole thing, with no special tools. It turns out that the cheapness of the metal screws (which makes them likely to snap in the first place) actually works in your favor here. I simply used my Dremel tool with a bit that is slightly smaller than the gauge of the broken screw. I kept the Dremel on a nice, low speed and pushed the tip of the bit down into the broken screw shaft. As I drilled, nothing but metal shavings came out of the screw hole, meaning that the cheap screw metal was getting destroyed by the Dremel. At the very end, I started to see some white (wood) dust coming out of the screw hole, meaning that I had reached the end of the metal screw and was starting to hit bare wood. I finished the hole repair with some wood glue and a toothpick shaft. When I reinstalled the tuner with a new screw, the tuner and new screw covered up the repaired hole entirely. So if you're wondering, the tiny tuner screws that seem to snap off frequently are made from really junky metal, which means that they can be easily drilled out with the kind of bit that you use with a Dremel tool. No need to buy one of those fancy plug cutting tool kits from Stew Mac.
