Good idea but could be better.

Most Stewmac tools are great for getting the job done. I bought the reamer and it works well enough but mine needed some sharpening before using it. I was installing in a piece of Spanish Cedar which I assumed would be easy to cut but the cutter just seemed dull to start with. Could have just been a bad one in the lot but you may need to take a file to it before over working and burning a hole instead of cutting one. Follow the instructions and make sure to push the guide rod well into the channel!

Do not buy if you plan to use it with the new Low Profile Hotrod!

The tool itself is VERY nice & does a great job cutting. However, I feel misled on the installation tool info link on the low profile truss rod page. This tool will not create the correct cut for that truss rod. Now I'm out some of my time & some materials. Customer support isn't even trying to win me back. Since the web info was wrong, this is clearly StewMac's fault. Usually, when a company makes a mistake like this, they will go above & beyond to keep loyalty. A simple refund doesn't quite seem to be enough. Even a measly 5% discount on my next order, wasn't possible. Oh well, lesson learned. It's been a couple weeks since I made StewMac aware of this, and the website still has the wrong info.

Buy it if you want, but make sure it will work with your truss rod.

I found another supplier & will likely not be back. I just don't like how this has been handled.

The Piloted Reamer works just fine another great tool from Stewmac. Their illustrated pictures are just enough info to get the job done.

First low profile rod I used I installed by hand. Liked the truss rod so much I decided to use them again and bought the tool.

This works as advertised. I also used it to clearance the 2-way rod adjusting channel in an angled 3X3 headstock, and it did a perfect job.
