Tuner Pin Drill Jig

About This Item

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.

A great time saver!

Have one of these around somewhere, but misplaced it. Needed to get another one for a tuner install job on a current project. I use this mostly to install Schaller single pin locking tuners (occasionally, the two pin version). I use an adjustable square on the flat edge of the Fender headstock to ensure proper alignment. Without this jig...the job would take a whole lot longer, just to align the pin location properly. I highly recommend this jig!

I just used this jig to install a set of Spertzel 6-inlines. Unlike a previous reviewer mine was spot on. It made what could have been a complex job a snap. After having used it I cannot imagine not using it. Well worth the $40.00 price tag. Thanks StewMac.

not a perfect fit

Surprisingly, this jig was slightly off when using the hole designed for Sperzel 6 in line tuners. We were installing on a 20 year old strat and the hole was too far away from the tuner peg, perhaps 1/4 of the peg diameter. Close but not a perfect fit and it bent the pegs out slightly once we forced them into place.

Great piece of equipment and a very trusty friend to my Dremel, where the two in tandem make upgrading tuners a plain breeze. Successfully installed a few sets of Sperzels with these, couldn't be happier.

Awesome simply a must have if you are going to replace your own necks or upgrade tuning machines. I installed 3 sets went from vintage to 10mm in less than half an hour. I'm glad I bought it.

Good drilling jig. However does not line up screw holes for Grover Tuners.

Very easy and precise tool.
10 minutes and your Sperzel or Schaller tuners easily installed on headstock.
No lifts, no wrong holes.
PS: Don't forget to use a small piece of duct tape to avoid drilling thru the neck :)
