Sold individually or SAVE when you buy the set of both reamers.

These reamers are semi-fluted, to help keep the holes round, and are available in two sizes.

The 3-degree reamer tapers from approximately .312" to .150", with 3" cutting length, and is suitable for many bridge pins from Gibson and Gurian.

The 5-degree reamer tapers from approximately .312" to .135", with 2" cutting length. It works for our vintage-style pins, as well as modern Martin bridge pins.

Bridge Reamer

Very helpful tool

I needed this to get my bridgepins to fit perfectly on a replacement bridge. It seems there was some small variance in the diameter of the bridge holes which left some of the pins higher than others. Couldn't do the job right without this tool. Be careful though, the reamer is very, very sharp and you can easily ream out too much wood or cut yourself.

A Small Word of Caution

Bought this tool so that I could use the 5 degree bone pins on my '78 12 string that had seen too many string changes. I can't really add much new to the other reviews - they are all telling the truth - except one caution: a little reaming goes a long way. No more than a quarter turn at a time. I almost blew it on the first pin hole!

Proper tool for the job.

Decided to properly fit the bridge pins on my Martin myself rather that hiring it done. Used it on 3 guitars so far. High quality. May be a tad expensive for a one time use, but in my case it has more than paid for itself. Great pleasure in servicing my own instruments. Excellent service from Stewmac.

Makes a Perfect fit for Bridge Pins

Due to the price, I debated about buying this tool for quite a while before buying it. Now that I have it and the bridge pins fit perfectly, I do recommend having one.

Pricey, but does the job.

Does your Martin guitar have bridge pins that sit a mile in the air? Then you need this tool to finish the job that Martin didn't. It's not cheap, but it does the job perfectly, and that's worth a lot. I used this tool along with Stew-Mac's slotting saws to slot the bridge and install Stew-Mac ebony bridge pins in my Martin D-18V.

After seeing my guitar, all my jamming buddies want me to do their guitars, too.

Bridge Pin Hole Reamer

These reamers are fine tools! It is possible to have from them an additional benefit.
For example to insert qualitatively any lonely file into a handle. Process them an input in handle preparation. Use epoxy for file fixing. On a photo ready handles are painted by a grey waterproof paint.

Bridge pin Hole Reamer

Cuts very nicely and perfect angle for my pins. Having spent money for high quality bridge, pins, bone saddle and nut, sound transfer was important to me. The reamer allows perfect fit for the pins. Pricey but there is no substitute. I also used it to ream hole for my end pin.
