Tuning Machine Drill Jig for Slotted Pegheads

About This Item

For classical or steel-string pegholes. This swiveling aluminum jig maintains 35mm (1-3/8") hole spacing for string posts or rollers.

Hardened bushings keep the holes straight, perfectly spaced and centered — you can use a hand drill!

Clamp the jig on any peghead from 1/2" to 1" thick. Use the supplied 13/32" (10.32mm) bit for classical machines, or the supplied bushings and letter "G" bit (0.261", 6.63mm) for steel-string tuners.

Great Tool but...

By

Just used it for the first time today - a real time saver and while though it may appear pricey, it's well worth the money and I DO RECOMMEND the jig. The down side is what Bryan mentioned in his review, the buttons on the pivot pins do come off. Perhaps a fix is in order for a future revision.

I purchased this for a slotted peg head baritone ukulele. It works great but the buttons that cap the pivot pins are not so good. It's very easy to pop them off and loose them. It would be better if they had some sort of positive connection.

Great Jig, But How About .236" Resto Tuners?

By

Verified Buyer


Used this for years, and works well. Only issues are interference on longer/wider diamond volute/dart (just trim the plates back a bit) and lack of a bit and drill bushings to use the jig for the 0.236" shafts on some vintage/Resto tuners. Did manage to break one of the pivot pins/axles with a drop to shop floor (concrete), but 3/16" drill rod worked as replacement part and good as new.

I rate this jig as one of the best in my shop. It is a joy to use and provides complete accuracy of hole spacing and alignment with the head. I used it recently for my 12 string head to set out the holes for the individual roller tuning machines. I would not be without it.

Works Great.

For some sixteen years I have been using the older model that works with a 10-mm bit, and then enlarging the hole without a jig afterwards. This works perfectly in one step.
