I've used a C-clamp to press them in. Obviously, but a block of wood or something on the back of the headstock to protect it.


Just did this on mine. Worked great.

I just did this..... used a reamer as meantioned above to enlarge the tuner holes so the tip of the gromet just goes in and then used a trigger clamp with the soft plastic protector to sqeeze them in

Point of clarification - are you talking about tapping in the tuners themselves, or the ferrules/bushings?
