Peghead Bushing Reamers

About This Item

Be ready for any tuner installation! Our custom-sized counterbore reamers ensure that your press-fit tuner bushings will fit correctly.

Before you install press-fit tuner bushings, be sure they'll fit correctly, so your tuners will work efficiently. Too tight, and they can chip the peghead finish or crack the wood. Too loose, and they can rattle or fall out. Our custom reamers cut a clean, accurate counterbore for a professional job.

Designed for slow-speed use in your drill press, each steel reamer is 2-3/4" (69.85mm) overall length, with a 1/4"-diameter (6.35mm) pilot and two 1" (25.40mm) cutting flutes.

The #2062 bushing reamer with .340" diameter is made for bushings on Waverly Guitar Tuning Machines.

The #2061 bushing reamer with .328" diameter is made for bushings on Waverly Mandolin Tuning Machines.

Important: Please measure your tuner bushings before your order a reamer. Most tuner and bushing measurements are available on stewmac.com product pages.

Install and remove press-fit peghead bushings cleanly
Don't use a hammer! Our Tuner Bushing Press gives you steady controlled pressure that will help protect the peghead finish, continue...

Worked Perfectly

By

Verified Buyer


I used them to counter sink some Kluson Tone-pros, and they worked flawlessly.
Having done without them previously, it was easily 10 times faster with them, and they cut extremely smooth.,

Must have for building parts guitars

Have to have this tool to ream Chinese Strat type guitars to accept 10mm tuners. Super sharp! Start slow. Put masking tape around the bit where you want it to stop. It will drill clear through in a heartbeat!

Great little tool.

It would hard to immagine how somebody could install bushings in a solid peghead without this great reamer. A must have tool in every guitar shop.

Nice clean cut.

By

Used this to open up existing tuner holes on a '53 Guild that came to me in stripped down condition. The tool works as advertised. Very clean sharp holes and .393" is a perfect fit for Grover Milk Bottles.

Great stress reducer!

By

Verified Buyer


I've drilled holes for bushings with a regular drill and a drill press--which is far better than trying to do it with a hand drill--but there's always the worry that the bit will grab and do some irreparable damage. This reamer takes all the worry out! I still get a little tear-out around the top, but nothing that the bushing won't hide. What's more, the size is perfect and the bushings press in with just the right amount of pressure. A good tool to have!

A life saver tool

The reamer makes installing your tuners a breeze. Just drill the initial hole, then use the reamer and you have a perfect fit for your tuner and bushings. Takes all of the guesswork and risk out of drilling the tuner holes.

Great Tool

By

Verified Buyer


I had 10 students building dreadnought style guitars, and all were using Grover 18:1 tuning machines and, there is no tool which allows the boring of holes to securely receive the bushings in the headstocks. This tool is accurate and simple to use.

Great tool

Yes, you can cut holes for tuning machines with standard drill bit options, but sometimes the right specialty tool makes the job nicer and easier. This is the case with this reamer. It makes it so easy to get the perfect fit with a really clean cut.

Gotta have

If you are going to the expense of wavily tuners please buy this tool. It works effortlessly to make a perfect fit
