I ordered the Wolfcraft 4525404 Drill Guide Attachment for 1/4-Inch or 3/8-Inch Drills, so I could accurately drill 1” holes in a board for dowels used in bending wood.
I needed the press to make the holes straight.
The press came partially assembled. Not a problem to complete.
Everything seems rugged, not quite as heavy as expected.
The test was drilling a one inch hole in a 2 inch thick particle board to a depth of 1.5 inches.
When using the press, it locks up. This is probably due to insufficient bearings for a job this size. Don’t press too hard.
When the unit locks up, you have to grab it with some channel lock pliers and twist it till it frees up. This may mean taking the drill and the bit off.
Not what I expected, and would not recommend it to a friend unless they are planning to drill smaller holes. I think 1” holes are a bit much for it.
