    Comments about Drill Guide :

    I was looking for a drill guide that could be used for wider surfaces than edge joinery, and this was ideal. I used this to put 3/8" diameter dowels in 3/4" oak (built a decorative rack with dowels for hanging small tools). Short of using an actual drill press, this economical device delievers the cleanest and most perpedicular drilling in an open flat surface I have ever seen or made. With the centering awl that establishes and maintains your mark and the transparent base, you can't miss. Unless you are really steady-handed, be sure to clamp it down.

    Comments about Drill Guide :

    I was ready to buy until I saw there was not any guides for the sizes I need. They need to include 3/32, 1/8, and possibly a guide not drilled that you could put the in between sizes. Look like a very simple and good tool.

    Great for drilling holes for threaded inserts and also for screwing them in straight. The T wrench they sell here will fit right in.

    I will be using this to make floating shelves in my house so I needed a guide to drill a straight hole in some barn wood that I have. I think this will work just fine for what I am doing.

    Comments about Drill Guide :

    I was considering a small drill press.. but would only need it for one project.. And didn't trust my skills at making perfect 90 degree holes.. Found this to fit the bill.. saving money, which keeps the wife happy. The bushings are not a perfect fit.. I addressed this by using a small piece of paper around the inside.
