Locking tuners for ‘93 Mexi Squier with 7mm peg holes?
 
Hello all, does anyone know if any manufacturer makes locking tuners with a 7mm shaft? I have a ‘93 Mexi Squier that has 7mm peg holes...which I only realized after trying to install the 8.5mm Hipshots that I was so sure would fit! I’ve been searching all over and can’t seem to find anyone that makes 7mm locking tuners, so maybe someone on here knows differently. Thanks!

Use a tapered reamer to enlarge the holes safely. DO NOT use a drill bit, it will chip the edges of the hole. use a tapered hand reamer and work slowly. It's not difficult. You'll need to drill the screw holes.

Thanks John, I’ll consider that.
