On the tuning machine, the thing the string is wrapped around. The string wraps around the post which goes through the headstock and ends with the spur gear attached to it with that black screw. You can turn that screw to adjust the turner tension by the way, or remove it to loosen things up to swap the tuning key to the other side. The tuning key shaft goes through a notched set of tabs and has a worm gear at it's end which meshes with the spur gear on the post. By turning the tuning key the rotation is transferred to the post via the worm gear meshing with the spur gear and the string is wound tighter or loosened. Hope this helps.
Funny Nathan, My cat is a Bengal - getting a mask on any cat would be a chore...
We are currently trying to raise funds for BengalRescue in the US all you have to do is register and vote for Leo the Bengal at the below link. $10k to the winner and that will save many Bengals lives. In the US there is a lot of misinfo about Bengals and shelter treat them like the Pitbulls of the cat world and put them down immediately. BengalRescue volunteers drive sometimes interstate to pick them up from shelters and foster and then rehome them. You make my day if you voted for him. http://mvp.bissell.com/mvp_PetDetail.aspx?id=8589947879
