      This was the most stressed out I will get today.

            I will say, I think it's fine to use a hand drill for Guitar mods at home, but when I'm in a professional luthier shop and they don't have a drill press and guitar jig -I'm dubious of them.

I doubt I'll change the tuners on my Dean ML (Grover non-locking) but if I do, the Gotoh's might be an option. I don't really play it enough to justify the change though.
              I recently swapped the Grover Rotomatics on my Guild acoustic for Gotoh SG301s and I wish I'd done it 20 years ago. The Gotohs weigh a decent amount less, and have none of the slop I've come to expect from most Grovers these days. Re-stringing afterward was the first time I've ever tuned that guitar without cursing at it.

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

                That's about right, with lumber prices these days 2x4s go for $1,500 - $2,500
