Drill straight and true holes every time with the Drill Guide Kit. The drill guide kit allows you to insert a steel bushing into the plastic guide so you can drill perfectly perpendicular holes. An ingenious design also centers your drill bit on edges. The drill guide kit also works to drill holes on spheres and cylinders.

(6) Bushings to guide 3/16, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16 and 1/2" bits

Nice guide set
I needed to drill some holes that were as close to perfectly straight as possible and a drill press was not possible for the material so I bought these guides. They worked reasonably well to help me drill the holes at 90 degrees to the surface.
Finding the desired hole location can be a bit tricky so I ended up center punching the hole position and then pushing the drill bit through so I could place the bit exactly where it needed to be. Then I lowered the guide and adjusted the angle of the drill as needed so the guide sat flat on the surface. I then drilled the hole starting the drill slowly. The end result was exactly what I needed.
The price is reasonable and it covers the most common drill/hole sizes you will find yourself needing.

Simple easy to use. Recommend anchoring it down instead of trying to hold it by hand, it will slip on you. Great price!

The Right Tool For The Job
I specifically chose the Drill Guide Kit for guiding the drilling of pilot holes for concrete screws. Honestly, I could not do this job without the Drill Guide Kit. The project I'm using it on is a long-term effort and as I use the Drill Guide time after time it functions perfectly and that's why I say; "The Right Tool For The Job"

K J on Mar 22, 2017
Sometimes I don't have a large project where the time to set up the drill press for a few quick holes is worth the hassle. I like the idea of this product so I can quickly mark out the spot and make the holes and move on to the next part of a project. It also looks handy for a corner and round objects which takes even more time to set up properly on a drill press. Cheers to this!

what is the best way to drill dozens of 37 degree holes in aluminum posts on site for cable rail?
Eric D on Jun 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Make yourself a "story" stick which you can be clamped in place on the side of the aluminum post to be drilled. The holes are pre-determined and will come out very consistent. If you do not understand what a story stick is, it is very similar to a template used to drill shelf pin brackets in cabinets.

Hava K on Nov 27, 2016
