Brace Repair Jack

Simple fingertip adjustment. A real time-saver for holding a cracked brace, bridge plate or crack repair cleat while the glue dries.

It has simple fingertip turnbuckle height adjustment, and glue-resistant cauls.

The 7/8"-diameter (22.23mm) feet are glue-resistant HDPE (high-density polyethylene), one flat and one grooved to fit over a brace. The jack extends from 3-5/16" to 5-1/4" (84.14mm to 133.35mm).

Video: Gluing a Martin D-35 back brace

This issue of Trade Secrets is a video: Dan Erlewine glues a Martin back brace, using Scissor Jacks along with tools you can make in your own shop. After this video, we developed the Brace Gluing Wedge to simplify this job and reduce the number of tools needed.

I'm glad there's an upgrade

Stew Mac is my first choice for lutherie tools, but in this case I'm glad there's an upgrade. I tried to use the cheaper brace repair jack to simulate string tension for a bridge job. This might have worked for me if I was able to get both hands inside the guitar with enough flexibility to hold the jack steady with one hand and turn the turnbuckle with the other. After an hour I gave up and ordered the scissors jack, which worked very well for me.

Using this brace repair jack as I'm writing this review. Just bought the glue wedge too, both work really great. Very happy, many thanks!

Hard To Use

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Very hard to get the brace in place and turn it to expand while not moving it out of place. It needs a thumb wheel that you can turn while holding the entire jack in place. It works, but be prepared to spend some time getting it into position.
