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.

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!!!

By

Verified Buyer


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.

Easy to use and excellent results....

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.

Works like a charm

By

Verified Buyer


I'm assembling a partscaster and I had several sets of sperzel locking tuners, a set of kluson locking tuners, and a set of schaller locking tuners. The variety of locating holes will line up with all three, so its versatile. Used it yesterday 6/3/19 for the first time. It worked well and fortunately for me pretty idiot proof. The results were excellent.

Great tool

By

Verified Buyer


I purchased this jig after being frustrated by other methods of drilling locator pin holes. Inevitably, the holes were "just a little off" using the indent methods. So I bit the bullet and purchased the tool. It works wonderfully. The price is a little high, but I will share the jig with friends to lower the cost per project.

You gotta buy 2!!

By

Verified Buyer


As Jonathan @ Feline Guitars said, you gotta buy at least 2 but maybe his idea of 3 is even better. For the price, I wish it came with a dummy block for hobbyists so you wouldn't have to buy 2. Trying to line up a single jig by eye or straight-edge 6 times is BS, meaning you won't get it exactly straight and you'll wish you'd bought two to make that job fool-proof. Buy two.

Pin locator

Verified Buyer


Seems I have been putting a lot of locking tuning machines on for friends and for myself as well.
I did make a jig out of wood that worked for a little while and was never really quite sure if it was gonna work for me.
I ended up buying one from Stewmac and it not only does a very nice job , but it takes away all the risk I was taking before I received my locator jig from Stewmac.
Also it came to my front door in just a couple of days. Thank you Stewmac L&R Philthy
