Product Details

This utility drill guide is manufactured from ABS thermoplastic, a material commonly used for injection moulding applications where structural strength and stiffness are required. The drill guide is truly portable and offers the accuracy and control achieved with a drill press combined with the added benefit of being able to drill at any angle between -45 and 45. The guide can easily be set up to drill perfectly true perpendicular holes. You can alter the drilling angle by releasing the two star knobs and then positioning accordingly using the calibrated scale, the angle is then securely locked off to ensure it will not change during use.

As all the main components are manufactured from ABS the unit is durable and hardwearing as well as being very stable during use. The head slides up and down on two steel bars and features a depth stop for repetitive boring. The base has anchor pins which can be used to stop the guide sliding on your workpiece during use. It also features a V groove for drilling round stock to stop it from rolling away from the bit.

The guide contains a 10mm capacity chuck and is supplied with a chuck key, the chuck is smooth to operate and provides a secure hold. The base aperture will accept drill bits and hole cutters up to 60mm in diameter. It will allow you to drill highly accurate holes at varying depths and angles without the need for a drill press.

Seems pretty good so far

Paul Carroll

Brilliant service as always, and a super tool. The basic guide is very accurate and plenty good enough for me. However, if you put a nonslip pad on the base and paint the sight lines white and you have a tool that will fulfil every need.

Paul Chaplin

am delighted with the sturdiness of this drill guide given the price. It is absolutely ideal for use with a cordless drill, unlike almost all other drill guides, and made a well-centred hole through two sides of stainless tubing.

The compactness of this is a big plus, and although I could have bought a dirt-cheap powered pillar drill / drill press for about £60 (roughly twice this), it would have taken up massively more space and required plugging in. Not what I was looking for.

It has its downsides. The chuck key has nowhere to "live", and there are plenty of potential storage places the designers could have included. There is no apparent fixed stop at the 90° mark, but it is easy enough to get close enough.

Tips:

1) The spiked pegs can be screwed in from the bottom instead, to provide rotational stability stops

2) The hexagonal drive shaft accepts quick-release (e.g. Wera Rapidaptor) connectors, which makes attaching and detaching a cordless drill an absolute breeze.

3) And finally... the chuck key can be cheekily stored in the chuck itself, treating the torsion bar as a drill-bit and tightening the chuck finger-tight by hand.

Thank you to Rutlands for quick delivery and a great product at a good price!

Works really well with any of my Festool cordless. I greased the slide bars so that the action is super smooth.

there is a lot one can say about this tool so not to rap it up in just a lot of piffal I have to say this and I really mean it buy it use it you will not be sorry unless you are some great moaner who just has a moan about every thing, this will do your job for you all you have to do is hold it in place now what could be more easy than that I mean it what could be more easy than that its so simple to use made very well hard wearing use it any where you please carry it with ease in your over filled tool box light as anything what more can i say with out boring you to death.buy one but give you this warning keep it save as every one will want it and you may lose it when they see you doing dead straight holes with out any effort.

Malc Hardcastle

Nice and light yet machined accurately so there is no play even when drilling small diameter holes.

Andrew Richford

A good piece of kit for a very fair price. Small enough to store and worked very well on a few test uses yesterday. Pretty sturdy when all the adjusting screws are tightened down. Very little slop and certainly within tolerance for DIY use. A whole lot better than my attempts to hold a drill square, I can assure you! My cordless DeWalt fitted easily and the whole rig was very easy to handle . A little dab of grease inside the the plastic bearings at the base of the pillars (dis-assemble first) took out some of the original stickiness, making it a lot easier to adjust. An excellent addition to my tool kit. Recommended.
