5th String Peghole Reamer

About This Item

The right tool for correctly tapering a 5th string peghole in a new neck, or for enlarging a standard 5th string peghole to fit a new geared 5th peg.

We've supplied our specially modified reamer to banjo makers for over 30 years. This fluted reamer has a 6-degree taper, from 1/2" to 21/64" (12.70mm to 8.33mm).

Hardened steel.

I had to replace a fifth string peg with a Stew-Mac.geared fifth string tuner that was larger and on a tapper. The reamer worked perfect, I am very happy. Thanks Stew-Mac.

Works well

This works fine. One thing I figured out afterward that wasn't in the video on the website: make sure you keep the reamer perpendicular to the banjo neck. My neck has a jog at the peghole. I seated the reamer on the rim of the hole and ended up installing the tuner at an angle. Works fine, but shouldn't be like that.

Fast service, fast delivery, excellent tool. Thanks Stew-Mac. I found you through a frets.com article and I now am the proud owner of an Aida banjo with all five strings available for my learning. Its been a real bear trying to learn claw-hammer without a 5th!

thank you again,

Zach
