    Hey all, I'm replacing the tuners on a Squier, but the holes are a tiny fraction too big for the tuner bushings. They sit in there, but are way too loose to use.

    Can anyone suggest a way to fix this without doweling the holes and re-drilling?

    use the old bushings? or if its close enough, glue some paper on, and then put in your bushings?
  3. Hi.

    CA or epoxy will do the trick. Use sparingly though, the mess is a PITA to clean.
