Peg Shaper

About This Item

Easy to use — works like a pencil sharpener! The peg shaper trims violin or viola tuning pegs up 3/8" diameter to the desired taper.

Works for violin, viola, flamenco guitar, old-time banjo, dulcimer and more. It's easy to use: simply maintain pressure with the top knob while turning the inserted peg to trim. The angle of the 2" blade is adjustable, and can be locked with the supplied Allen key.

This precision tool is made of machined aluminum and steel.

Another time saving quality tool from StewMac at a reasonable price. I feel that it should be offered with a matching reamer (at extra cost, of course)

Violin peg shaper

By

This tool works, but not simply like others I've seen in Dan Erlewine's video for violin setup. Some others on the Internet have three sizes and work like a pencil sharpener which is easier. Almost fool proof. One has to be careful with this tool.

I make my own friction pegs for fretless mountain banjo. This is an awesome tool. Little price but well worth the money if you shape a lot of pegs.

needed to turn down an oversized endpin. absolutely flawless end result. there is a limit to the angle/length you can get to, but fortunately my need was JUST inside that envelope! (5 degree endpin).

Essential Tool!

Doesn't it just make you mad that you have to buy one of these things just because they refuse to manufacture pegs at the right taper? Another thing to do that is critical to smooth pegs is use a tuner adapter for your cordless drill and spin the peg pretty fast when feeding into the shaper. It makes for a far smoother peg.

VALUE FOR MONEY

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I think that is a fair tool value for money, but with this action-corner adjustment becomes very complicated. I would prefer it to be already adjusted, Classical type I think is much more useful.
