I was considering for down the road because I saw rosewood pegs for sale I also saw the need for matching reamer also,I am working on another guitar now a cedar La primadora box I had to completely glue back together,with a cherry and mohogany neck and a Wenge fret board earlier tonight I glued the fret board on,so I’m a little further on then the pictures,which are of gluing the box back together it wasn’t all apples and spice though as the 1st neck I kind of messed up when I got too frisky with the belt sander,it could be used if you dont mind the divot by the tuner head! I guess you can’t win them all ,I kept it ,it might be a candidate for a ukulele or a vilolin

Taffy,tuning problems over time!? How many problems for how much time?how old is that….Dulcimer?

Hi, don’t know how old that instrument is. Tuning issues occurs depending on how well the pegs are fitted in the first place, and how often used I suppose. Using proper violin pegs is what I would do, too time consuming to make them myself.

I’ll post how I did the fitting without the peg box reamer.
