Tuner Bushing Press

Don't use a hammer! Use this press for damage-free bushing installation and removal.

A fine instrument deserves care—our Tuner Bushing Press is the right tool for installing press-fit tuner bushings. Its steady controlled pressure helps protect the peghead finish, for a clean, professional looking job. It removes the bushings too, even stubborn bushings in counterbored pegholes.

• See-through protective sleeve for bushing removal (no working blindly)
• Clear protective peghead caul works with multiple bushing sizes

This convenient handheld tool was developed by Todd Sams here in our shop, and works with most major brands of guitar and mandolin tuning machines.

Best of all, it removes the bushings too! Even stubborn bushings in counterbored pegholes can be removed easily and without damage, thanks to an adjustable expanding pin that grips the bushing from the inside.

Minimize the finish damage usually caused when extracting a bushing: Choose the hole in the 3-hole clear bushing caul that matches the bushing (each hole is different, so you can get a close fit). Lay it between the clear sleeve of the Bushing Press and the peghead. The caul will hold down the finish while the bushing is being pressed out.

Included with the Tuner Bushing Press:
  • Brass pin for bushing installation
  • Expanding brass pin for bushing removal
  • 3-hole clear bushing caul
  • Allen wrench
  • Instructions (see instructions online)

Nice but heads swivel around too much.

(Customer's Reviews)

Great tool and great idea but it's still half baked. The heads on this device swivel around too much requiring that they be held by hand in order to keep them from moving out of place when squeezing. In the future, tighten up the rivets that hold the heads onto the claps.

This little beauty takes all of the sweat out of removing/replacing bushings in vintage instruments or freshly finished headstocks.
