Just run into these from Barber in Valencia, They are made in Taiwan, Barber sells them for about 150 euros, I guess ex VAT. They look good and promising. Any experiendce with it?? The name is Perona tuners. made in taiwan - put perhaps you know that Taiwan is very diferent from China.

They look good Christian !

Reminds me a bit of the Rubners I recently had to order for my new custom build.
Does these white spindles actually have a bearing ?

Here's a picture of Rubner Superior 160€ but not exatcly the ones I ordered though.

Yes they have bearings. Personally I had some issues with the ebony knobs on the Rubners, even if the tuners work smoth, the handles have some play which is not so nice, but it is not the superior series, just the special series with the teflon, even like that not so happy about it.
