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...

Perfect Tool!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


This bushing reamer works perfect! I would much rather ream the bushing area and leave the rest of the smaller hole for support on the tuner shaft rather than do what many others do and just open the complete hole up to the bushing size. The cutters are of excellent quality and cuts are smooth and percise. The bushings pushed in by hand and were seated with a light tap of a dead blow for a perfect snug fit. Nice tool StewMac!

The perfect tool for the job

These peghead bushing reamers are the absolutely perfect tool for this job. After using this, the bushings on my tuning machines fit perfectly, and could be pressed in by hand to a snug fit, without risking a crack in the peghead. Well worth it.

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

By
(Customer's Reviews)


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.

Prep brings successful results

By

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.
