Guitar Screw Rescue Kit

About This Item

An extractor and plug cutter that's small enough for guitar screws! A StewMac exclusive: you won't find a similar set in this small size anywhere else.

  • Extract damaged or broken tuner screws
  • Make uniformly-sized wooden plugs for plugging and redrilling
The complete kit includes:

Screw extractor
Our tubular steel screw extractor works with your drill. Hardened teeth bore around a broken tuner-mounting screw (3/32" maximum diameter) to capture and remove it.

Plug cutter
Use this custom tool in your drill press to make a 3/16"-diameter wooden plug, a perfect match to fill the hole made by the extractor or the drill bit.

3/16" drill bit
To repair stripped screw holes, use this steel twist bit to match your plugs.

Alignment guide
Clamp this clear acrylic guide in place to help keep your tools right on center, and protect the instrument.

Blown away by this kit!!!

By

Verified Buyer


I've started at this kit for months. I've watched Dan's video on the use of this kit for a very long time. But I always balked at the price. Granted, I understand that the screw extractor and plug cutter are not commonly available pieces.

Then I had a Tele neck come into my shop with four broken-off screws in the headstock, and the mounting holes were drilled HORRIBLY off-center. I decided to bite the bullet and get the kit.

OMG!!! I am foolish for not having gotten it sooner! The plugs are so tight they almost don't need glue! The tolerances are perfect and the extractor works like a dream!

Do yourself a favor and stop with the swage-block and dowels...get this kit!

Good save.

Received the kit today. Worked well. The plug is ever so slightly under sized to make a snug fit and the drill guide could use a couple of center marks but overall it's very helpful.

A much needed set of tools

In the process of changing pickups in my Gibson, a screw broke off. I may not need these tools frequently, but they were definitely needed to save my Gibson. The plug cutter cut to the perfect size that the screw extractor cut.

I needed these tools.

Set is well made. Not like the other similar extractors being sold. Used on three repairs so far with success.

Screw extraction success

By

Verified Buyer


This kit relieved stress of further damaging the bass guitar neck of my Acoustic Washburn Bass. The E tuning peg screw head was sheared off. I easily extracted the screw with this kit, picked up a small length of maple wood, drilled out a dowd with the other bit, glued, waited then chiseled the excess off and zipped a replacement screw back in to the tuning peg. Thanks for the video and the kit!

Lifesaver if you work on restorations

Purchased for the guitar bench have used in several furniture and other restoration projects. I wish it came in more sizes for other types of screws. Life safer for work on garage sale restorations.

Worked like a charm!

80's Les Paul with not only a glued-in broken strap button screw but two broken drill bit tips from someone trying before me...

As presumed, the screw extractor bit was too small but, after removing the shrapnel left behind to expose just the screw, the plug cutter worked perfectly.

I can see how the alignment guide would be useful however it wasn't in my case because of the screw location.

Perfect! Easy to use, professional result.

I love it. I have been aware of this tool for a while. Now that another tuner screw got stuck and snapped in a particularly hard maple neck I ordered the full kit and it works like a charm.
It's really easy to use, even with my battery powered, handheld power drill. This set provides a really nice, clean and professional solution for a problem that used to be a real pain. Thank you Dan!
