Bridge Pin Hole Reamer

About This Item

Accurate holes for a better fit! Our special wooden-handled steel reamers properly taper the holes for bridge pins.

These reamers are semi-fluted, to help keep the holes round, and are available in two sizes.

The 3-degree reamer tapers from approximately .312" to .150", with 3" cutting length, and is suitable for many bridge pins from Gibson and Gurian.

The 5-degree reamer tapers from approximately .312" to .135", with 2" cutting length. It works for our vintage-style pins, as well as modern Martin bridge pins.

Upgrade vintage 3° bridge pins!

By

I get requests to upgrade old, Japanese plastic pins. I like to use StewMac 5° wood pins. It doesn't take a genious to see how quickly a few jobs pays for this precise tool. I've never found a 5° reemer anywhere else.

I got these items to put in bridge pins on a dulcimer and a guitar later. they work well but the price is outrageous. even at half the price they could be considered over priced. I bought them because I need them but if i could have found them cheaper I would not have purchased from here.

Excellent tool for the job.

I tried to expand another hole with available tools and almost ruined it.
After that I have decided to use right tool for bridge pin holes.
It works beautifully and in no time, but it cuts very good, so it should be used carefully, by small steps.

Worth every penny!

I tried to avoid the expense by using a hardware store reamer and I also purchased a much cheaper version online but both we're like toys. Don't waste time or money, go for the real thing. These are professional tools!

Works well, but use carefully!

As other reviewers have mentioned, it would be easy to ream your pin holes too large before you know it! My pins sat about 3/32" too high in my Martin 000-17S. I started with one turn at light pressure which seemingly took very little off, but the pin height was lowered halfway to my goal. My advice, keep fitting the pin and checking after each half turn. Each hole took only about two turns to seat the pins properly.
This is an expensive tool but it is the only way to fit the pins properly when used carefully.

I bought this because I was replacing cheap, plastic bridge pins with new bone pins, which were larger in diameter, and accurately tapered. This tool made it easy to dial in the exact dimension I needed for the new pins. It's very sharp, and solidly made. It corrected the bridge pin hole size and taper in very short order.

Not what you would expect

By

Purchased both the 3 and 5 degree after reading the other reviews. I used the 3 on two different guitars mostly for cleanup. My customer furnished a new undrilled bridge assembly for his mid 60's USA made Epiphone, the customer requested 5 degree pins to keep it as close to original spec as possible. I pre drilled the pin holes and inserted the reamer to finish the sizing. Gave the handle about two turns and the reamer handle just spun on the shaft. When I pulled up on the handle it came off the shaft, leaving the shaft stuck in the hole. I found that the pin in the handle was 1/8" above where the shaft sat in the hole. I had to remove the handle pin, clean the glue from the hole, insert the reamer into the handle then reset the pin. After the brand new tool was repaired it worked flawlessly.
