StewMac Brace Repair Jack

About This Item

A better way to glue loose braces
Insert through the soundhole and turn with your fingertips for clamping braces, bridge pads and patching cleats.

Luthiers asked for a stronger, faster, easier brace jack, and our R&D team delivered!

  • Heavy brass body stays put as you adjust the height
  • Sturdy machined brass threads—no wobbling
  • Glue-resistant end caps are double-notched

The double-notched end caps fit the two most common brace profiles: the gentle slope of Martin braces and the more triangular shape found on Gibsons. The caps are made of glue-resistant high density polyethylene.

Adjusts from 2-7/8" (73mm) to 4-3/8" (111mm).
7/8"-diameter (22.23mm) caps are glue-resistant high-density polyethylene.

Brace Repair Jack

By

Verified Buyer


Guitars age and unfortunately sometimes also can fall on a hard surface which may cause braces to separate from its surface or break. First time using the jack. It is a well designed brass assembly and easy to use.

for more than braces.

I purchased 3 of these for a side crack repair that was 12 inches long. It took some fiddling to raise the top and back to relieve the tension and align the miss match. When all was said and done these jacks helped save a miss treated brand new Simon and Patrick dreadnought. My only complaint is they could be a bit longer. These will make a great addition to my other Stew-mac tools. Thanks guys!!!!!!

Perfect tool for the job

I used this on a repair with loose braces and it worked great. I suggest extending it as much as you can outside before setting it in place inside the box

Big Improvement

These are much better than Stu-Macs previous version. What we need now, are SMALLER ones!
About 1/2 this size would be great !

Good idea but.....

i bought this to repair loose braces on a '52 Gibson LG1. Unfortunately the top and bottom braces don't line up so you need to place a piece of wood inside to lift to fit. Pretty hard to tighten and hold in place at the same time. I just love glueing braces.

Had some bracing to repair and this jack was the right tool for the job. Great tool to have for not a lot of money.

Awesome.

Worked perfectly. Exactly what was advertised. I was able to glue a brace back in place without any issue. If you don't have some of these, get'em. I will be looking to StewMac to expand my specialty tools for my guitars. Thanks guys.

Saved a recording session

By

Verified Buyer


This is a great little clamp, well built and easy to use. Now that these clamps have brace notches on both ends they are far more flexible in their applications. And...the other day, one of these saved a recording session: We were tracking down a subtle "buzz" in the audio while tracking an acoustic guitar (and it was subtle). We finally tracked it down to a loose brace in the top, near the sound-hole, slipped in the jack with a small amount of pressure, and - no buzz! Recording session saved!
