Tuning Machine Drill Jig for Slotted Pegheads

About This Item

For classical or steel-string pegholes. This swiveling aluminum jig maintains 35mm (1-3/8") hole spacing for string posts or rollers.

Hardened bushings keep the holes straight, perfectly spaced and centered — you can use a hand drill!

Clamp the jig on any peghead from 1/2" to 1" thick. Use the supplied 13/32" (10.32mm) bit for classical machines, or the supplied bushings and letter "G" bit (0.261", 6.63mm) for steel-string tuners.

Excellent tool

(Customer's Reviews)

This is a really good tool to have- my holes lined up perfectly and cut clean.


works great but

(Customer's Reviews)

I purchased this for a slotted peg head baritone ukulele. It works great but the buttons that cap the pivot pins are not so good. It's very easy to pop them off and loose them. It would be better if they had some sort of positive connection.


Great Jig, But How About .236" Resto Tuners?

(Customer's Reviews)

Used this for years, and works well. Only issues are interference on longer/wider diamond volute/dart (just trim the plates back a bit) and lack of a bit and drill bushings to use the jig for the 0.236" shafts on some vintage/Resto tuners. Did manage to break one of the pivot pins/axles with a drop to shop floor (concrete), but 3/16" drill rod worked as replacement part and good as new.
