The tuners Jimmy refers to were Rogers "LaCote", and they are the only set I have ever used or have ever seen or ever heard of for that matter. LaCote tuners were intended to be used in classical guitars, but I had a set made for steel strings. The entire mechanism of the tuner was inlaid into headstock so that only the shafts, one for the knob and one for the string, were exposed. I made a pretty arty design for the headstock, as you can see if you check out the page I linked earlier, and there was some question in my mind about whether the head was adequately strong for the long haul. But I haven't heard about it again as the years have passed, so I am thinking it worked out. As far as I am aware, that guitar stuck to the original buyer as I imagine I'd have heard about it if it came back to market.
