Product Details

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...

Have you tried to have a stepped drill bit made recently?

By Daniel Roberts
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, January 12, 2012


It is unbelievably expensive to have a stepped drill bit made these days and even if you have the money and find a machinist to do it well, it is far more likely to chip the fragile Ebony headstock overlay... furthermore you will only have one size. This takes just a couple minutes longer and the cut is absolutely clean and perfect. Furthermore it is always best to go ahead and do a stepped hole rather than using one larger diameter hole and not locking in the back. This way you can be sure that the tuner will be lined up and secure.

Just be sure to ream the 1/4" hole enough so that ppossible humidity changes down the road don't cause the back hole to tighten onto the shaft too much and cause tuner grab or malfunction. I have started using these on all my builds. Superb job guys! Keep up the good work.

Now if that is easy to properly frame bushings, all the work worth your performance!

For me, it is almost impossible to properly install tuner bushings without these.

Prep brings successful results

By J. E. Mike Tobey from Davenport, Iowa

I have three of the sizes-covering the more common brands. On any pre-finished headstock, I highly recommend gentle masking tape over the tuner holes. Clearcoats of all kinds are fragile and taping at least helps avoid chipping. I also pre- bevel the edges of the tuner holes with a tapered reamer. "Slow-speed" is relative-I have found the speeds available in high-torque electric screwdrivers(mine is a Bosch, shaped like a small battery powered drill) to be best.

Used this once and it was perfect for the job. Easy to use and it gave me the exact diameter with a very smooth surface.

Cut perfect holes on an install of some banjo economy tuners. It helped bring a $30 pawn show wreck back to life!
