    Does anyone have any recommendations for some tuners that would be a straight swap for the ones I have on my Squier Standard Telecaster?
    I don't mind filling a few unused screw holes, but I don't have any woodworking tools so reaming larger holes is out of the question!, and I don't want locking ones either.

    What's wrong with those? They look quite functional.

    I don't believe there are any hidden screws so why would you have to fill holes?

    Why do you want different tuners?
    Is your nut stock?

    Yeah, but why spend the money to get the same thing you've got?

    I think he'd do better to learn how to mount the strings.

    I bought these locking tuners for an older SX guitar I have. They fit there easily enough, replacing the originals that had gotten a little stiff over the years. They probably will fit your Standard but if you're having tuning issues, the nut and stringing technique should be your first stop.

    Don't have tuning issues and the nut is fine. Just fancy a more vintage Kluson type of inline tuner!!

    I was trying to answer the question the OP asked. I am assuming something may be wrong with the ones he has.

    If you mean the split post style, Kluson makes 'em, but you might need adapter bushings to fit the 10mm holes.

    If you gotta change 'em, try the Wilkinson vintage style, probably readily available in the UK, but hang on to those Squier Standards. There's nothing wrong with them.
