The Herdim Rotex peg shaper enables you to trim even larger quantities of violin pegs precisely and efficiently. Working similar to a mechanical pencil sharpener the peg is inserted into the cutting cone while the crank is turned. It cuts quickly by a rotating cylindrical blade with spiral edges, a few turns are sufficient. The final shank diameter (measured at the collar) is 7.5 mm, adjustable to within +/- 0.5 mm. With the optional drill bit adapter the pegshaper can be driven effortlessly with a slowly running cordless power drill which gives a smooth cutting action.
Very sturdy design, body and crank made from anodized aluminium, cone brass, blade hardened tool steel (62 Rockwell).
