Hello all,

    I've seen a few mentions of banjo-players on Mudcat so I thought I'd post this here.

    I've broken the plastic button of the end of one of my tuning machine heads on my cheapy Encore banjo - any tips for doing the repair? I'm guessing it's impossible to fix another button to the end and I'll have to fit a whole new machine head. It would be nice to avoid drilling new holes into the headstock if possible, but that is possibly inevitable.
