I have a broken grover tuner. The pin broke off and it looks impossible to repair. Other than buying 10 new tuners anybody have any suggestions?

What "pin" do you mean, and which model? Can you post a picture?

Like most techs I have a tone of miscellaneous tuner parts, so you might take the broken one to a guitar tech shop and see if you can match it up.

Jim,

I think Stephen is probably referring to the "pin" that is cast into the back plate of a 210 C Grover. It must have sheared off somehow. It might be possible to accurately drill a hole where the pin was and press in a spring pin of the appropriate diameter.



With that said; I believe Grover tuners come with a lifetime guarantee, so it might be worth it to contact Grover for a replacement.

I would contact Grover. Or contact the company that built the guitar, If still in business. They may have a spare laying around. Good Luck in a replacement and back Steelin.
