Depth-stop Drill Bits

About This Item

Stop breaking off small screws! When that little tuner mounting screw breaks off, you'll wish you'd used the right size drill bit!

Here's a versatile 7-piece mini bit set for avoiding catastrophes when you're installing tuners, pickguards, string trees, truss rod covers, pickup rings, and more. The closely spaced sizes let you choose exactly the right bit, a must for installing diabolically small screws in hardwoods such as maple, ebony and rosewood. As a bonus, each bit is color-coded with a handy movable plastic depth stop (you don't want to accidentally drill completely through your peghead, do you?)

SAVE when you order the complete set of 7

Here's a tip from our R&D luthiers:
If a depth stop sleeve loosens over time, remove it and put a little #10 thin super glue inside. Turn the sleeve to coat the inside evenly and tighten the inside diameter. Not too much glue—don't clog the sleeve. Apply a little paste wax to the bit and push it through the sleeve. You can spray a dash of super glue accelerator for a faster glue cure. The depth stop will fit like new again!

Perfect Accessory

By

Works as advertised for exactly what I needed to install tuners.

Just what the guitar Dr. ordered!

Great set - Great Quality - Great StewMac Service!

I used a finger drill with these and kept everything delicate. Took my time and the job was done perfectly. The "stops" are adjustable to your needs. With the right tools, you can do the job right.

Great tool,but be careful!

I bought one of these bits and it works - but, you need to be real careful because the "stop" doesn't stay in place. So I would recommend this bit for very slow speed drilling that you are being careful with and paying very close attention to the depth you are drilling. I might try gluing the stop in place for the depth I'm using it for. It works good, you just need to pay attention when you are drilling

I now have a dedicated tuner screw hole drill s that I don't have to hunt for correct bit, and masking tape the drill depth. Price was right, works great, and saves time! How did I get by so long without it?!

I had thought using tape as a depth stop was good enough until I drilled through the head stock once installing tuner screws :-( these are a blessing :-) Thank's Stew Mac !!!!!

Prefect depth control.

If you are taping bits like I was, STOP! The plastic guides work great. Even when used directly against the wood, I didn't have any damage of any kind. Worked great with the jig for tuner holes.

Great item but would be nice to be labeled.

By

Verified Buyer


These are great drill bits and a great idea to have a stop in place. My only complaint or recommendation would be to label them. While they are all different colors, once you open the package they are just very similar bits with different color barrels. There is no way of telling what size they are. Printing the size on the color barrel would be helpful. Otherwise 5 stars
