Last month I broke my violin (I suck at violin and it's a shit violin, so I don't care in the least) and decided it was a good opportunity to replace the nakajiru's karakui on my sanshin. (... The middle string's tuning peg)
First, I had to pull out the broken karakui that was stuck in there. I had to use a pair of pliers to pull it out, but it kept breaking off so I pushed it out carefully from the other side using the back end of the plier handle (in order to make sure I didn't break the uujiru I took it out before doing this). I took a tuning peg from the violin and whittled it in a tapering fashion to fit in my sanshin (I did this with an unnecessarily large hunting knife). After a while of getting shavings all over my bed (I'm a dumbass) I shoved that bitch in that there sanshin and strung 'er up good. Now I can play all the strings!
