Old style PRS tuning cams

I have a '92 PRS CE 24. I really need the wing shaped cams that lock the strings. I'm having a hard time finding them. Anyone know where to go? Even PRS doesn't have them and suggests to upgrade to the new style locking tuners which arent a retro fit and would require drilling new holes into my vintage PRS.

The old wing tuners pop up on eBay every once in a while, but they are getting harder to find. I worked with a dealer last year to try to get PRS to order a run of some vintage-spec tuners from Schaller, but Schaller wouldn't do them in a relative small quantity. So, you may be in the same boat with a lot of pre-'95 (or so) PRS owners. The cams definitely wear out, causing the string to slip on the post. Imagine having an '85 PRS that becomes unplayable due to the worn out tuners ( and drilling holes in the headstock is out of the question for that guitar!), PRS really should do something about this.

I'm in the same boat with my 94 PRS. The tuners are right on the verge. I don't ever plan on getting rid of this guitar, but I still don't want to drill any holes!
