Peg Shaper

About This Item

Easy to use — works like a pencil sharpener! The peg shaper trims violin or viola tuning pegs up 3/8" diameter to the desired taper.

Works for violin, viola, flamenco guitar, old-time banjo, dulcimer and more. It's easy to use: simply maintain pressure with the top knob while turning the inserted peg to trim. The angle of the 2" blade is adjustable, and can be locked with the supplied Allen key.

This precision tool is made of machined aluminum and steel.

Useless after the blade is sharpened

By


This works great until you have to sharpen the blade. Reducing the width of the blade a tiny bit makes it hit the peg at the wrong angle. The blade can't be adjusted more than a 1/16th of an inch or so, and that may not help. The back part can't be adjusted more than a 1/16th of an inch either. There needs to me some way to adjust the blade up and down so it intersects the peg at a good cutting angle, but it won't do this. You have to buy a new blade. Better to use a traditional violin shaper which you can find for about $28.00 in other places.

All around excellent!

Very sturdy, well made device. I like the fact that although it is preset at the factory to the standard peg taper for 3/4 and 4/4 violin pegs, it can be adjusted to different sizes and tapers (very carefully!). I have used it out of the box to re-peg about 3 fiddles so far, and it has worked flawlessly. Much better than trying to "eyeball" it with a belt sander, which is what I was doing.

Another time saving quality tool from StewMac at a reasonable price. I feel that it should be offered with a matching reamer (at extra cost, of course)

Violin peg shaper

Verified Buyer


This tool works, but not simply like others I've seen in Dan Erlewine's video for violin setup. Some others on the Internet have three sizes and work like a pencil sharpener which is easier. Almost fool proof. One has to be careful with this tool.

I make my own friction pegs for fretless mountain banjo. This is an awesome tool. Little price but well worth the money if you shape a lot of pegs.

needed to turn down an oversized endpin. absolutely flawless end result. there is a limit to the angle/length you can get to, but fortunately my need was JUST inside that envelope! (5 degree endpin).
