So I'm looking to get a set of these for my warmth neck only warmth say they have routed a 11/32 hole for schaller tuners. But stew mac say there 13/32. Ive asked on the warmth forum and the guys there seem to think they'd be tight but would fit. Im really looking at getting these tuners as the neck has been finished and i don't want to drill mounting holes through lacquer ?

If they are too tight you could crack your headstock.

They won't fit an 11/32" hole. If you force them, you will split the headstock. It's pretty easy to use a reamer to get to the desired size (13/32", 10MM) and if done carefully you won't harm the finish. If you're not comfortable doing it, find a good Tech. If you have a drill press you can try using a drill, but the chance of damaging the finish is much higher.

Could stew mac be wrong with measurements because all there schaller tuners say they require a 10mm 13/32 hole, but warmoth drill 11/32 for schaller tuning pegs ? if they don't fit where can get a reamer from to adjust the size?

I love Warmoth, but if that's what they said, they are wrong, unless Schaller makes a vintage style tuner. All the Schallers I've seen on Fender guitars require 10 mm holes.

Well warmth say 11/32 and they sell schaller tuners on their site which on other sites say 13/32 so I'm not sure. The holes drilled seem to be 10mm on the back and then there a little smaller on the front thats the thing. The tuners I've ordered are single pin and don't require mounting screws. If they don't fit is it difficult to make the rest of the hole 10mm and expensive tools needed or just a 10mm drill reamer ?

Check Ebay for a reamer. I got one there a while back that I still use on tuner holes. Here's a link to one that will work: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ENKAY-720-C-TAPERED-REAMER-1-8-TO-1-2-/280877636319?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item41659c9adf
Reamers like this remove material quickly, so you have to be careful not to over do it.
