Jump to new posts Re: Why not a worm drive to tension strings? by Steve Senseney @ Yesterday at 06:47 PM

As I read this, I thought about guitar tuners. Guitar tuners are a worm drive. The tension on the guitar string is much less than on a piano. Guitar tuners wear out with enough use. Bass guitar tuners are fairly large. If they were scaled to w
