Many of us know at least one person in our lives who is good to have around when our knowledge or skill sets aren’t enough. These everyday “handymen” and DIY heroes are just what you need when you find yourself in a pinch to solve a problem and just get the job done.
I recently purchased the set and on the first use of the 5/64” bit the drill bit broke off in the hole. I was drilling hard maple and made it through three holes before the bit broke. As an experienced wood worker, I am aware of precautions to take when drilling harder woods. Beyond the frustration with a tool failing and having to remove the bit from the hole, the length of the drill bit requires the purchase of a specialty replacement. I would not recommend this set.
Am using in a drill press and can get accurate, centered holes in brackets where I could not before. easy to clean. Some people state they brake easily but they will break if you don't drill straight considering the bit is surrounded by a housing.
I have had this set for about 3 years and they work well. I have had a problem with the springs breaking, I primarily use the 5/64" bit and the spring failed after about 6 months of use. I took the springs out of the other units and and put them in the 5/64" bit and they all eventually failed. I e-mailed Snappy Tools looking to buy replacement springs, and they replied the same day telling me they were sending replacement springs free of charge.
This centering bit will make every screw to go straight in the center every time you do a hinge job.
Work great. good quality. always had problems lining up holes with hinges. this solves it, simply and quickly
