Peghole Reamers

About This Item

These professional luthier’s reamers aren’t like hardware store versions. One side of our Peghole Reamers is round and smooth. This keeps the reamer centered so the hole stays truly round—essential for tuning pegs!

  • Easy to use
  • Smooth control, no chatter
  • Perfectly round holes

Standard Reamer is most often used for installing guitar tuners, enlarging holes in pickguards and lots of other tasks. The 2-degree taper matches the tuning pegs on full-size violins, violas, banjos and dulcimers.
2-degree Taper: from .200" to .375" (5mm to 9.5mm)
Cutting Length: 5.63" (143mm)

Large Reamer fits double-bass and cello tuning pegs. This big reamer comes in very handy for lots of jobs in the shop.
2-degree Taper: from .312" to .625" (7.92mm to 15.88mm)
Cutting Length: 7.88" (200.15mm)

Made of quality high-speed steel with hollow-ground cutting edges and comfortable wooden handles.

I got this to instal some gototh (i think thats how you spell it) locking tuners and it worked jus perfectly, but it was definitly a incredibly tight squeeze, even after i used the entire reamer, a little bit more to the reamer would have been nice

Reaming violin peg holes

By

This reamer is needed for fitting Wittner geared pegs. EXTREME care is needed!!! 1 turn of the reamer can be 1/2 turn too much.
Test the peg depth when it is pressed in TIGHT, otherwise you can easily go an 1/8" too much.
The reamer is very sharp and requires no effort to turn, so it is very deceiving.

Using this tool to size new tuners during installation on acoustic guitars. Nice and sharp, maintains concentricity as you size holes without tear out.

I purchased a set of tuners and needed to enlarge the holes and this reamer worked great. The Reamer is easy to use can cut slow or fast - centers itself in the existing hole I purchased the smaller one but really needed the larger size- my future purchase - Delivery was super fast EM

The Best Cello Peg Reamer

By
(Customer's Reviews)


For me, this tool was very expensive and l've debated purchasing it for some time. I read all the reviews and decided to go for it. The tool is just beautifully made. I have never used a better peg reamer. And yes the handle is not equal to the reamer, but I have made a new ebony handle and the tool is now as beautiful as it is functional.

Excellent.

I bought this item along with the peg shaver and the two match perfectly. It was my first time using either piece of equipment and it couldn't have been easier. A little on the expensive side but good value for money if you plan to use it on a few instruments.

The Price of Perfection

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Other reviewers are spot on. This reamer is a fine precision tool. Works flawlessly. The price leaves me feeling a little reamed as well, but hey, I'll give Stew Mac the benefit of the doubt and say I guess you "get what you pay for". Good tool - good vendor.

Key tool, high cost.

By
(Customer's Reviews)


This is a key tool for completing a guitar. Cleans out peg holes, extra paint, gunk, etc. it will slightly open a hole too. I have yet to get a burr. It does not chatter. This is one tool you will use often, and will be pleased with the result every time. But the cost is exceptionally high, and the only reason it gets a 4 instead of a 5.
