Tuner Pin Drill Jig

Aligns your hand drill for accurate tuning machine mounting pin holes.

This anodized aluminum jig accurately locates mounting pin holes in the back of a guitar headstock. Use it before drilling for the alignment pins found on many modern enclosed tuning machines. These tuners don't use the traditional exposed tuner mounting screw, but rather a hidden pin on the underside of the tuner housing.

It keeps your hand drill perpendicular for accuracy, and works for left or right-side tuners. You can position single-pin Schaller tuners, two-pin Schallers, one-pin Sperzels, and Fender locking tuners. The jig fits into the peghole with a self-centering bushing and thumbscrew for quick and easy attachment. Instructions included.

This jig is designed for use with a No. 38 (.101") drill bit. Measure the height of the alignment pins on your tuners and drill the holes to the appropriate depth.

This tool makes a difficult task much easier. You still have to be very careful to keep the tool lined up!

Great item

I love the tool, except it has some issues like requiring a standard spacing and the holding screw clamping is not as positive as I would like. They are great for 19 out of 20 guitars, and most tuning machines.

I use it at least once a week. Very easy to use. You can't go wrong purchasing this tool.
A must have for the busy repair shop.

Worth the money

Bought this after I botched the initial install of my new tuners.

Well worth the money - the schallers were installed in about 20 minutes with the jig. Going to install some sperzels on a friends guitar this weekend as well.

Removes that "funnyfarm" feeling

Being a new custom guitar builder I wanted not only a much more easy way to do things but being spot on is most important to me. This little jig is one of the best tools that I would put in my "can't do without" list and proves to have value. If your doing one guitar or even plugin a headstock from an old set of tunners, this is indeed valuable.

Does the job!!

I used the Tuner Pin Drill to install two-pin locking Tuners on a new neck. It worked perfectly. I positioned the jig by placing a small square across the headstock and pushing the back of the jig against it. It was fast and effective.

Best option for drilling holes for the pin

By

It can be a bit fussy at first, but once you get the feel for setting the jig up, it does an excellent job of locating and helping drill the holes.

Good but way Overpriced

Works OK. The jig wobbles a bit if the mounting screw isn't super tight. Next time I'll use a piece of 1x2 and 2 wood clamps to hold the jig parallel to the neck edge. That should cure the wobble issue.
