“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with Sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Peghole Reamers

 


HIGHEST QUALITY REAMER
10mm tapering to 5.5mm. 135mm long. Taper: 1/30

Our German peghole reamer is essential for builders who employ friction pegs, and virtually a necessity for those who use Schallers™, Gotohs™, Grovers™, and most tuning machines where either the bushings or the barrels are 10mm (3/8") in diameter. This reamer has three blades on one side working against the opposite smooth side. This configuration gives the roundest hole. (Fully-bladed and half-cone types of reamers tend to make rough cuts and eccentric holes.) It's the only reamer we've seen that's titanium-nitride coated; the life of the blade is extended from 3-5 times! Because the friction coefficient is less, cutting is cleaner and easier.

 

GOOD QUALITY REAMER
9.5mm tapering to 5mm. 135mm long. Taper: 1/30

The blades of this American-made reamer are nicely machined in the same configuration as the SPRM, above. This reamer is a bit to small to work for classical guitar machines, but it works well for friction pegs.
