The Good: 1) It is a relatively well made tool.

This guide does a better job of drilling a straight hole than just doing so freehand, but is no replacement for a drill press.
Sagar S. Mungekar
Even with the guide base very securely clamped to the workbench top, the drilled holes were not vertical.

I was surprised to find that there is a paucity of drill attachments for handhelds to help drill straight holes. This one does a fair job of addressing the problem.

The chuck is 3/8", so larger bits will not work. Assembly is straightforward, as the handheld drill attaches to the top spindle and rides on two springed rods.

The base is not too steady as it's not completelty flat. There are too many allowances for screws and the like that make the base unstable. The handle works somewhat, but it can rock a bit while drilling.

The chuck is keyed. A keyless would have been nicer. It also has about 1/16" play, which means that the hole is not exactly at the center. The depth stop is collar that can be tighetened on the rod.

The springs on the rod are fairly hard, perhaps too hard. Furthermore, the depth stop stops the drill when the springs are completely compressed, requiring quite a bit of force, all while trying to hold the base steady. I removed the springs and it works much better.

This guide does a better job of drilling a straight hole than just doing so freehand, but is no replacement for a drill press. The concept is fine, but it needs some redesigning to work better. A DIY fix would be to attach a larger base to the bottom.

I like using this and it certainly improves the drilling and makes possible angles and such. It does take a little preparation, but for the money, it's an economic way to get good work done without having a drill-press. I'd also like to add that it is a little bulky, and I wasn't able to use it in a tight location like I'd hoped, but that simply means you need to plan for that.

CONS:
1. The two top screws tend to loosen when your drill is making a little bit much vibration due to the nature of whatever you're drilling. You have to tight them after every hole you make, or the angle will change.
2. It's hard to handle it when it's connected with the drill, because it weights almost the same as the drill. I think they should've made it a little lighter.
3. For aiming, you have to press a few times before getting to the right place so you can begin to drill. A laser beam would've helped a lot.
4. It's very hard or impossible to drill a hole near the edge of a wood sheet, I had to mount it in a piece of wood to get the work done.

PROS:
1. There's nothing like it in the market. So it solves a lot of my needs.
2. Fairly accurate, much better than drilling with your bare hands.
3. Fair price, not too expensive.

I didn't tested other angles besides 90ª.

I recently purchased the Wolfcraft 4525 Drill Guide for a woodworking project. I do not have room for a drill press and needed to make some holes for some bookcase shelves. So here is the good, bad, and ugly.
The Good:
1) It is a relatively well made tool. I have dropped it several times while it was still attached to my old B & D 1/2" drill with no damage. The spring action and adjustable angle are relatively smooth.
2) It helps make repetitive drilling much faster. It is much better than taping the drill bit to mark a desired depth
3) It makes pretty good 90 degree holes
4) There is nothing else quite like it on the market.
5)Stores easily
The Bad:
1)The play in the slide and bit attachment keeps the bit from always landing in the same spot. I think using brad point bits would make centering much more accurate. I also think a few modifications to the design could fix the problem.
2)The blue knobs on top that hold the desired angle seem to come loose often
3)Setting the right depth can be tricky because of the pressure of the springs. But once it is set it does not become unadjusted easily.
The ugly:
I think Wolfcraft should spend a little more time developing this tool. It is a cheap, simple, and effective replacement for a drill press. I would be willing to pay more money for a more well designed unit.

So, this is not really a 5 star product, more like 4 star, but I felt the need to counter some of this insanely negative feedback. First of all, this is not a substitute for a real drill press, but that should be obvious. Also, for $27, you should not expect the tool to be engineered to do highly precise or heavy drilling (plate steel, etc.).

This product does exactly what is says it does. It helps you put nice, true holes through pieces of wood where you can not use a drill press. I have not used it for angled drilling, and I would think that might be a bit challenging, but still, the results would be much better than a free hand job by the average home improver.

Positive: tool functions smoothly, and holds its angle very well - solid as a rock (not sure how anyone had wobble in this tool if they set it up right. However, there is a bit of play in the chuck/chuck housing. It will go a few degrees either way, but again, still better than free handing. The chuck works well, it is not a high precision chuck, but again, we are talking about a $27 tool, and for that price, it works very well.

Negative: the on critique I would have of the design is the base. They put a big groove down the middle of the base that you are supposed to use for on-edge drilling. It is a good idea, but it means that the base is not really solid when you are working near the edge of a piece of material. The on edge groove, really could be 1.5 inches, since over that you could use the flat. It is a bit frustrating, but you could easily screw a piece of plywood to the base and make it more stable near edges.

I would definitely recommend this product to the casual woodworker. It may not stand up to daily professional use, but at this price, it is a great tool to have around.
