The BIG GATOR TOOLS V-DrillGuide™ is like a portable drill press for precision alignment! V-groove along the bottom of the guide allows for perpendicular alignment with all drill sizes on round parts and corners. Bottom surface is precision ground to assure stability and accurate perpendicular alignment on flat surfaces.
Drill guide is sized for fractional drill bit sizes of 1/8" to 3/8" in 1/64" increments. Guides are made from special nickel alloyed steel that is heat treated for durability. Drill straight - every time!

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. However, for bigger holes, I also have had good luck using it to drill the pilot holes, and then following by carefully enlarging the hole with the proper bit, just go slow and careful.
For drilling through flat objects, follow the tip I read in another review. Shine a light down the V groove, and you can look down the hole you will be using for a guide, to center the jig.
It is one of those tools, that is so simple, and error proof, everyone who does any amount of drilling, should have one.
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.
If you can move a mill or drill press into the field, this precision made US manufactured tool, used together with one or more tooling clamps, is the next best thing. Makes a welcome gift.
It comes in a two-piece plastic storage container.
It is plain steel, so I keep it lightly oiled when stored to avoid rust.
The guide is notched on the bottom side to allow fitting to a dowel.
Not that it's a big deal, but I debated between 4 and 5 stars. Judgement call. I'm not raving about the product but it's definitely worth the price.
