It's well designed and made of good quality steel.
MyFyrByrd
After several uses of varying size drills, the guide helps me know when my drill is as close to perfectly vertical as it can be to insure a straight hole.

I do farm maintanence, and part of my job, is fixing bin augers. These augers are driven from one end, by a hub that fits over the end of the shaft, that has a bolt that goes through, coupling everything together. What happens, is that every now and then something will work loose, start to wobble, and wear out the end of the auger shaft. The fix is simple, cut the bad part off the end of the auger shaft, bolt on an extension sleeve, re-connect everything, and go. The problem, is drilling a new hole in the end of the existing auger shaft. The hole must be square and centered, for everything to fit properly. This job used to mean that I had to pull the entire auger shaft out of the assembly (some of these are 20+ feet long, and weigh maybe 80 pounds), haul it to the shop, figure out a way to jig it up in the drill press, all to drill one hole. With this guide, all I have to do, is pull the shaft out far enough to gain clearance for the drill, clamp this to the shaft, and drill the hole. Turns a 3 or 4 hour job into one that takes less than one hour. While maybe not Space-Shuttle precise, it does VERY well, guiding the drill bit straight and square. Just be sure you have it clamped securely, so it can't wiggle.

The way it works, is very simple. This is a simple jig, that has a series of holes precisely drilled through it, which act as a guide for your drill bit. It is of hard enough steel, that the bits don't seem to be able to bite into it, and enlarge the holes. On the backside of the jig, a V-groove is machined, so that if you clamp it to a shaft or pipe, the jig is automatically centered, and squared to it. You are only limited to using it for the drill bit sizes on the jig, and in spaces where you can securely clamp it.

As a retired handyman living in a condo who can't get the sawdust out of his blood, I don't have room for shop tools anymore. A recent project called for drilling holes exactly through four layers of finished boards. While this is no substitute for a drill press, with lots of clamping and measuring, this product did work. The "V" slot for use on round stock also was handy for shining a light into to assist in in centering the device over pilot holes.

That said, the centerline marks etched on each side were not "exactly" accurate and were difficult to see. And you still get a bit of wobble in the drill, though it was by far much more accurate than drilling free hand.

Yes I would buy again and recommend.

That this tool is popular isn't surprising, as the alternatives are unwieldy jigs. At several hardware/home improvement shops I'd asked about solutions for those drilling with hand tools and they knew of none. This one at least is portable, if a bit pricy. But its bottom surface can slip if one isn't careful. The manufacturer warns against drilling without first clamping the guide, but that isn't always possible, as when drilling into a wall or the side of a board. One also can't see if one is right over the drill point, and the markings are too rough for precise work. What I did in my first test project was punch a hole in the (wood) surface, then felt around for it with the drill head, placed the guide appropriately, then drilled.

Note that one loses an inch or so of potential drill depth, and smaller drill bits tend to be rather short. Also, some have noted the drill guide coming with a small case. Mine came only in a blister pack and without a case.

There are several "drill press" attachments to help make a perpendicular hole with a portable electric drill. All are largish contraptions, and are more-or-less clumsy to use. Here's a great little device that does the job by directing the drill bit itself, rather than by holding the drill. (Note that it only works for the particular drill sizes listed). It's made of a hardened steel alloy, so you'll want to keep a bit of oil on it to prevent rust - a more durable case or sleeve would have been a plus. They make tapping guides, too.

I'm not sure why I haven't had this Drill Guide in my tool box until now. This is a well-built precision tool that will ensure that your hand-held drill will be in a perpedicular position to your work piece prior to drilling. I used this tool to drill through 2-2x4's and 1-4x4 simultaneously. The drill went through the stack-up perpendicular to the wood and out the back in the correct position. Prior to receiving the tool, my attempts at drilling perpendicular through the stack-up were very unsuccessful. I would definitely recommend this tool. The plastic protective case is a plus.

This is one of those "must haves" for any serious DIY'er. Very well MADE in USA and a very useful item to have when just the right application calls for it. It's a tool that you'd say you're glad you have it in your shop or tool box when the need arises and there's no other way to get it done right except with this little giant. It is one that will do so much for so little. When I look back at past projects, I wish I had this then and dare I say, "Things would have gotten done a lot more easily".

Interesting product. Works well, helpful, but doesn't guarantee straight holes when using a small bit because they can curve, whereas thick ones can't...so it works better for thicker bits. So for small bits you wish it were a little longer, except that the longer it is of course the shorter is the usable portion of your drill bit, and thin bits are typically already make short, so I guess this is pretty optimal.
