You might try contacting the Early Music Shop in Saltaire. I can't seem to make a blue clicky that works, but if you google 'early music shop', you'l get there. I doubt whether they'll have the tuners, but they might be able to point you to somebody who knows where you can get them, or can get them repaired. There's probably somebody making them.

I restored a Portuguese mandolin about thirty years ago and had a small engineering firm make a couple of square-headed tuners up for me. Some time after that, I needed some more for a Portuguese guitarra. Heap's Music Shop in St Annes had a box of spares from which Mr Heap managed to extract matching knurled tuners. He died afew years ago and I believe the box of bits went to Eddie Green, local luthier and sound man (in every sense!)
I'll PM his address and phone no, Silas.
