I need a set of tuning machines for my Johnson MA-100 mandolin, but "standard" tuning machines have posts that are 29/32" between centers, and this mandolin's posts are farther apart -- 15/16" between centers. Doesn't sound like much distance, but standard tuners will not fit. Where can I get a set of tuners that will fit this instrument?

You can slide the silver plate straight back by gently pushing it from the top with your fingers. Once it slides off you will then be able to see the hooks that you put the new strings on (loop end strings). Once strings are tightened, you slide the cover back on the same way you slid it off. There is a small piece of felt glued to the cover. Be careful not to knock it loose when you are putting the cover on.
One other tip, change one string at a time instead of pulling all of them off at once. The bridge will come loose if you take all the strings off at once (it is not glued to the mandolin).
You may be able to help this prob. your self. You will need a set of hemostats about 10 in. long. A nickel sized dental mirror a flexible LED light . First of all unstring it , put strings a side.Next look in side to the under side of the top of your Mandolin .With your lite and mirror you should see a spot where the post was org. placed.Now with your hemostats reinstall the post. Now this is like building a ship in a bottle, but it can be done , but just a little at at time. You need to lift up the whole top. Remember the top did not drope down all at once, nor will you rase it up all at one time. A little eack day untill you have reached a perpendicular point . One more thing, you post fell because the insturmant was to dry.You need to keep it humidfided . Take it to the shower with you. dont get it wet let it soak up the steam, it will help you get the post back up right and it will love you four it. Get a humidfier for it OK
Looking at your desired notes the mandolin is standard tuned to gdae.
So three of the four notes are already available, just put the "d" mando strings where the "g" ones would go and the "g" ones where the "D" ones would go the highest is already a "e" and I am sure the "a" would tune up to a "B" with little risk. You can also look at string sets made for the madochello or possbly octave mandolin.
