I've been buying products from LMI since the 70's, long before the web was around. 
The selection and quality has always been superior, and the pricing reasonable! There are other places I can go to buy materials, but none that I trust as much...

Peghole Reamers


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.


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.
