These self-centering bits and sleeve from HIGHPOINT® solve a very perplexing problem for box makers and any other craftsmen using small hinges and those pesky small brass screws. Developed at our store in Dayton, Ohio, to help in their box making classes, the bits and sleeve make installing hinges a snap. The Micro Center Bit Set includes two brass sleeves and two drill bits. The 3/8"-diameter brass sleeves taper with four equal sides; the soft brass allows you to easily customize the end for your specific hinge application. Inside sleeve diameters are 1.18 mm and 1.7 mm that allow optimal centering of the #56 (1.18 mm) quick change drill bit or the 1.7 mm quick change drill bit. The quick change style bits not only allow for ease of use in your cordless drill, but can be used by hand in softer woods or very tight applications.

    Very helpful, but

    This works quite well when working w/ small hinges. There appears to be a manufacturing issue , however. When drilling, the bits do not stay in the hex holders. I solved the problem, at least temporarily, by gluing the bits into the holders. Get that issue fixed and I'd give them a five star.
