Where are you all getting your tuners from? I've been mostly getting them from china with mixed results. Some have been ok, some total junk and some haven't shown up at all. I don't mind paying a little extra if I know they are going to be decent. There must be a middle ground between $5-10 for garbage or $60 for "proper" gears. Any recommendations?

I just buy a box of custom eagle you get a set of 6 for 15 bucks per box I buy 5 at a time and get them $10 a box from my local shop in Hobart .

Hi TDQ, Luckily I can buy mine from the Aussie wholesalers along with other parts. What I also do is to mix and match different sets. A 3 a side set will do two 3 string CBG's [you can turn the knobs over on most sets] I also use 6 a side sets, and 12 string sets of tuners and cut them up [if on a plate] if needed.

Cheers Taff

Don't suppose you have links to the  Aussie wholesalers you are talking about?

Links??, I'd do a google search.
