One major advantage of tuning keys like the Schaller M6 is that you can easily disassemble them, and replace damaged or worn parts. The cog visible still within the body of the tuner is the part most likely to suffer from wear and cause tuning problems. This can be replaced by first removing the screw at the top end of the button, which allows the entire arm (to the right of the picture) to be removed. The cover (marked GIBSON) is very difficult to remove from above without damaging it. This is best removed by pushing with a small screwdriver or similar from the underside, now accessible thanks to the removal of the tuning arm.
