Default Super treble tuning pegs

I'm starting to build a new harp guitar, and I was wondering: for those who play harp guitar with super treble strings, do you prefer zither tuning pins or tuning machines? And what are the benefits/drawbacks to each?

If zither tuners require a special wrench, I would definitely prefer regular guitar tuners.

A point of interest would be the stability of the tuning pins compared to that of machines. If a pin's tapered hole becomes a problem, a reaming is probably necessary, alternately, if a machine goes bad, replace it/the whole set. A second point: Where did I put that tuning key?
