Tuner Pin Drill Jig

About This Item

Aligns your hand drill for accurate tuning machine mounting pin holes.

This anodized aluminum jig accurately locates mounting pin holes in the back of a guitar headstock. Use it before drilling for the alignment pins found on many modern enclosed tuning machines. These tuners don't use the traditional exposed tuner mounting screw, but rather a hidden pin on the underside of the tuner housing.

It keeps your hand drill perpendicular for accuracy, and works for left or right-side tuners. You can position single-pin Schaller tuners, two-pin Schallers, one-pin Sperzels, and Fender locking tuners. The jig fits into the peghole with a self-centering bushing and thumbscrew for quick and easy attachment. Instructions included.

This jig is designed for use with a No. 38 (.101") drill bit for all holes except for the Schaller M6 two pin, which requires a No. 42 (.093") or 3/32" (.094") drill bit. Measure the height of the alignment pins on your tuners and drill the holes to the appropriate depth.

I am delighted with how well this jig aligns holes without damage to the wood. I just used it on roasted maple which can chip out easily. Clean and precise! Good product, a must have.

Bought this to install sperzell locking tuners on my 01 AMse strat. At first I thought it was a little pricey but after a botched install of tuners on another guitar by "eyeing" it, I bought this tool and had the job done straight in minutes. Not sure about other guitars but if you have a strat with the single post minting pins and need to install double pin like on the sperzells, this is a no brainer. I highly recommend this tool.

Works well but improvement is possible

I used this to install Schaller m6 mini tuners on a Warmoth Strat neck. The #38 drill was the same diameter as the pin but the pin didn't go into the hole- either the hole was slightly in the wrong location or it needed to be larger. So after removing the jig I hand drilled the holes a bit larger. It is also tedious to align the jig perfectly. It would be nice if the jig had holes on each face to fit a rod holding a sliding post that would fit into the adjacent headstock hole or extend across to the opposite hole in a 3x3.

A great tool for a beginner like me

I bought this tool to help me install Fender tuning pegs on a tele-style neck. This jig made drilling the 12 required holes easy and precise.
Be sure that you use a #38 drill bit for the pin holes. 3/32" was too small; I knew better than to try a 7/64". My local hardware store had one left in stock.
Tip: per the instructions, I marked the depth of the drill at 11/16". I used teflon plumbers tape wrapped a few times around the bit, and it held solid for all 12 holes.
Great tool! I'm afraid that without it I might have messed up a really nice neck.

Worth every dime

Professional tool equals a professional result, I did a set of 2 pin tuners about a month ago on a fender squire headstock without your tool and I got through it after grinding down a few of the pins and a little language not to be used in mixed company but it did work out ok but this project I used your 2 pin drill jig and what a nice professional job, I'm glad to have it with my other guitar tools and feel it was worth every dime.

Installed a set of Fender locking tuners on a "Squier" strat. They had the same style holes but did not line up with the new tuners. The jig worked perfectly, about a 30 minute job total.
