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.

Pin locator

By

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

Works Perfectly

I upgraded a '52 American Vintage Telecaster w/Sperzel locking tuners and these jigs worked perfectly. I ended up purchasing 2 which makes alignment much easier.

I went to install a set of Fender Deluxe locking tuners on a MIK Fender Toronado. The Deluxe locking tuner pins did not align with the pin holes for the MIK tuners. I had to drill new holes and this jig worked perfectly. Side note, the Fender Deluxe locking tuner completely covers over the old MIK pin holes.

Loved this jig. I used it (along with the drill bit set I bought from StewMac) to drill the pin holes for some new tuners on a new neck. I used a finger drill with the bits and the delicate job was a piece of cake. Thanks StewMac!

Perfect stud holes

By

Verified Buyer


This rig is crazy easy. I used my Dremel with drill bit attachment with this and was able to get the holes perfectly straight. I just taped the bit off to get the depth perfect. Schaller tunes fit perfectly, I used the washer and nut to seat the tuners perfectly.

Great job guys.

I am delighted with how well this jig aligns holes without damage to the wood. I just used it on roasted maple which can chip out easily. Clean and precise! Good product, a must have.
