V-DrillGuide

Unread postAuthor: PVC Arsenal 17 » Wed Feb 06, 2013 8:47 am

I bought one of these recently and I think it's a fantastic tool. If you don't have a drill press or you're away from one and you need to drill a perpendicular hole, this will help you out. It even has a groove which allows you to drill perpendicular to pipes and into corner stock. It has great uses for building cannons.

Note: I have no affiliation with this company. I saw the product in Make Magazine and bought one immediately.

That tool accessory is made for people like me! I can line something up with a try square and spirit level but when it comes to drilling the hole it wont even be close to perpendicular :D

I'm usually pretty decent with drilling, even freehand, but I might pick one up. Perfect for <s>drilling a good flash hole in mini cannons</s> keeping small bits from breaking.

See two sales already, they must pay you well

Hey fellow AUSPAC members, I want one too. :D
Can we do a combined Oz order then ship Mr C's over the ditch ?

That metric one looks perfect for so many jobs drilling pipes that I cannot lug to the drill press.

I would bet purchasing a mill is not something one would ever regret. :lol:

The only regret is not buying it sooner!

I've had one of these for several years and they are great. I've no need to use it for drilling, but it's a great hand tap guide for small or quick parts.

I hadn't thought of that. Good idea, though it wouldn't exactly work with tapered thread taps.
