StewMac Truss Rod Access Cutter

About This Item

Perfectly smooth and centered, every time.
Make a clean access cavity for a truss rod nut on an angled peghead with a hand drill.

Install the guide into a 3/16" truss rod channel and clamp the neck into a vise. Using a hand drill, the piloted cutter bit creates a clean access cavity in seconds. No drilling too deep or chewing up the peghead with a rasp, file, or gouge.

Designed for Gibson anchor nut and half-washer like our #2545 Gibson Truss Rod. The adjustable guide makes it suitable for straight or curved truss rod channels.

It also works for our Traditional Truss Rod Kit and Mandolin Truss Rod.

Truss rod access pocket


Verified Buyer

This tool is the best tool I have ever used. It's always been a struggle for me to make the pockets by hand. I drilled 4 pockets in 5 minutes. A real time saver and they are perfect when done!
