I had the urge to replace the old pegs of my cheap fiddle as they weren't turning smoothly. Here's a few pics. You can see from the photo that the old pegs, though black, were certainly not ebony. I practised on the one on the left with my home made peg shaper and the blackness all came off!

The old pegs:

Home made shaper - hole cut with the reamer and a plane iron.

Finished job - they work much better now!
