Description

In Detail

Suitable for all mains drills with a 43mm diameter collar, these are convenient aids for accurate drilling of vertical holes. Typical applications are dowel drilling or kitchen door hinges, which need an accurately located and square recess. A vee groove in the base gives accurate location of round items. The guide rods can be set to protrude beyond the level of the base, so the guide can be used to automatically centre on an edge, very useful when undertaking tasks such as drilling a door in order to fit a lock for example.

OK but conception flawed

I wanted this to help me create mortices easier than just with a chisel using Forstner bits. Managed to get my (wired) drill clamped in securely. Discarded the pointless depth stop. Main problem is that once you tighten the screws that hold the upright guides enough so that they hold securely, the drill binds as you raise and lower it. Basically this is not a precision bit of kit. But hey, not that bad for the money!

Disappointed

Disappointed by the lack of accuracy of this product. Way too much play between the drill clamp and the shafts, completely defeats the purpose. Surprised by Axminster for selling this quality of product, will pay much more attention to the reviews before buying another Axminster product.

Sloppy piece of kit

The problem with this is that the posts are a very loose fit in the holes that slide up and down, holding your drill. So if you press down on your drill, the tip of your drill bit can wave around alarmingly, missing the point of intended entry. If you line up the drill exactly vertically, but then miss the mark because of the flex inherent in the design, your drill hole will not be vertical. If you’re looking for precision, this is a waste of time and money.

Disappointing

Could be a great product with a little more quality and thought in the design. The main components are fine. But the depth stop is impossible to use as one cannot tighten the thumb screw enough to ensure it does not move because of the pressure exerted by the spring. Very quickly the thumbscrew falls apart, the orange plastic bit is just glued to the poor quality bolt. The cheap handle is fairly pointless. If you don’t need the depth stop then it’s fine.

Pretty good overall

bought it to use with a plug cutter which works fine. Also find it useful when installing door handles, both for installing the barrel and for drilling fixing holes from the side
