“I'm doing some wood binding today, and I pulled out a few pieces of curly maple I've had for a while that I bought from you. It never ceases to amaze me how LMI, above all my other suppliers, just consistently gives me materials that never fail to surpass my expectations. No matter what any picture on your site looks like, whatever I get is always better. Really appreciate it. I know that you supply many other people far beyond my volume and talent, but I am definitely a customer for life!"
This classical 3-hole tuner drill jig by John Gilbert makes easy work of an exacting task. The 13/32" holes are industry standard, as is the 70mm (1.378") post hole spacing. For alignment purposes, lines are scribed center to the hole on the outside of the jig. A steel plate can be clamped to and extend out from the head, to act as a stop. Between this steel plate and the jig you may need to add shim stock to center the holes (see photo). If necessary, the jig can be used as a single guide by simply moving it from hole to hole.
Solidly made of cold-rolled steel and drill bushings, it measures: 3 7/8" x 1 1/2" x 3/4"
Use the 13/32" drill bit, HSSJ1332, with this jig.
