Use this press for damage-free bushing installation and removal. It works with most major brands of guitar and mandolin tuning machines.
A fine instrument deserves care — this tuner bushing press is the right tool for installing press-fit tuner bushings. Its steady controlled pressure helps protect the peghead finish, for a clean, professional looking job. It removes the bushings too. Even stubborn bushings in counterbored pegholes can be removed easily and without damage, thanks to an adjustable expanding pin that grips the bushing from the inside
- See-through protective sleeve for bushing removal (no working blindly)
- Clear protective peghead caul works with multiple bushing sizes
This convenient handheld tool protects against serious peghead damage. As tight-fitting bushings come out of the peghead face, they often cause chips of dry wood and lacquer to pop up around the peghole. This is a well-known problem, and the tuner bushing press protects against it in two ways:
- Bushings are eased out gradually, without hammering.
- We provide a clear protective caul that surrounds the bushing on the peghead face, holding the finish down as the bushing slides out.
