Don,

What kind of "crappy" antennas are you using, i.e., doublets fed with coax, 
open wire lines, etc., or end-fed wires?   Or, some combination of types maybe? 
  

Rather that building up a bunch of tuners you might consider putting your 
efforts into erecting a set of antennas that all worked directly off a 50 or 75 
ohm coax feedlines.   Half-wave dipoles, one for each band, for example, or one 
or more of the multi-band arrangements (G5RV, fan and trap dipole, etc.).
