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.

Ideal Tool For The Job

By

I've spent years trying to improvise a way around drilling locator holes for tuners. This little drill jig just makes it a breeze. It's not cheap but it saves a lot of time and pays for itself quickly. Gets you tuners fitted straight and accurately fast.

Meaning don’t even think about installing Fender or similar locking tuners without these. Very simple but an absolute must have for these types of tuners!

Doesn't work on kluson tuners

By

Didn't read the instructions before I bought it but it isn't compatible with kluson tuners. Otherwise it's very handy.

Don’t try to drill without it!!!

I bought this after I acquired some new tuners for my guitar. Didn’t think much about trying to hand drill my own holes. let me tell you, you don’t want to try that!! Lol this thing saved me and saved my guitar! easy to use absolutely with perfect Precision drilling, a true lifesaver!! Turned an all day headache into a 10 minute job! You need one of these if you plan on changing out tuners on any instrument that require you to drill new holes!

Very necessary Item !!

Only catch.... You need 2 of them but worth it. Well, one other catch is that you need to make your own depth stop bit to use. Stewmacs will not work with the jig.

Purchased to add Fender Locking tuners to 2 squiers (One Strat And One Tele) and 2 MIM Stratocasters. I bought two and lined them up with straight edge, professional results with recommended drill bit, which I also bought from stew mac (the stop bit). Also used to install a set of Schaller Locking tuners on a Epiphone Les Paul. Would highly recommend, and I second the recommendation to buy two for ease of use.
