The title says it all. Will heavy gauge strings cause problems with the machine head?

Well I'm mainly talking about the lower strings.

Most tuners can take up to a .60. Usualy the simpler tuners can go a little over that. Some more complex tuners like the self-cutting and locking tuners or banjo style tuners will be a bit more limited.

I don't know about damage, but some of the heavier strings won't fit into a tuning head unless it is made to be bigger. Kind of like sticking a bass string through the thing.

If you are using strings so heavy you are afraid your tuners will get damaged... What about the neck? Just sayin i think the neck would go before the tuners unless you have crapy tuners

I know how to adjust the neck. I'm just not sure about the tuners.

the only problem you will face with your tuners is the hole might be too small. I use 13-60 in E standard and my tuners (stock bc rich) are fine.

as someone else pointed out, locking tuners tend to not be able to fit the larger 60+ strings, but a drill solves that problem fairly easily.

Will you incur damage? No. Is there a chance it might not fit? yes. Depending on how thick of strings you want, the tuner might not be able to fit it. But that would have to be a god damn thick string. My lowest string on my Alexi 600 is a .52, and I know you can fit at least up to .56 on it. So, try the strings out on the guitar. What gauge are you using?

I'm only using a .52 on my E, but I find it really stiff to turn the peg. Is that the effect from using heavier gauges?

That's the effect of cheap tuners. On my MH-100, I have to put some work in to get it tuned. On my Alexi 600, it's totally fine

the higher the ratio of your tuners, the easier it is to turn the peg. Higher end tuners generally have a higher ratio (eg. 18:1 is easier than 16:1). If you're having a really hard time, you could always get better tuners, but your current ones aren't in any danger, as far as I can tel.

You might just need to spin the head around a couple dozen times. Tuners are self-lubricating, but the heavy strings rarely get more than a few turns at a time, so the lubricants never get spread around. Mine started working better when I started twirling them with a string winder before I put a new string on.
