The Peg Ringer

The peg ringer is an ingenious tool designed to make a permanent, professional repair to the dreaded crack that occasionally develops in the side of the pegbox, usually between the A and D pegholes. It allows a circular groove to be milled on the inside of the pegbox wall, concentric to the peghole, so that a brass ring can be inlaid to securely prevent peg tension from reopening the crack. This tool eliminates the need for the costly and time-consuming cheek graft procedure, which involves removing original material to reinforce the weakened area. Made in Germany of tool grade hardened HSS. Also useful for other similar repair work.


          

 

Complete Peg Ringer Tool Set

Complete set for violin, viola, and cello. Includes cutters for violin/viola and cello, and 10 violin/viola rings and 10 cello rings.

The Peg Ringer is a new tool that repairs one of the most difficult breaks in a violin. A peg hole break, most often seen on A-pegs in a violin, usually requires significant wood replacement to obtain a reliable repair. The Peg Ringer consists of a steel shaft, a circular saw and two centering sleeves to allow milling the groove concentric to the peg hole. An initial set of brass rings is included.

All parts are made from hardened tool steel
