I’ve been meaning to write up this tool for a while. I’ve had it for a couple months and have used it maybe 7 times. It’s great. Solid hunk of real steel, drilled accurately. Has a V notch in the bottom to sit nicely on a dowel or other curved surface (or corners), and enough flat surface that it works well on flat stock. It’s really flat, sits solidly on flat stock. The center points of the holes are indicated with lines on both sides, so you can line up the hole accurately. Tall enough that even 3/8” goes in straight, but short enough that I can get a decent depth with the smaller bit sizes. Holes from 1/8” to 3/8” in 1/64” increments. There is a metric version if you want it.
I’m one of those guys that can’t seem to keep the drill straight on both axis at the same time. This lets me drill straight when I can’t use the drill press. I use a clamp – free hand doesn’t cut it for me.
Very nice tool, made in USA.
