    Drill Guide
    Clever jig. Very useful. I still own one of the original drill jigs from about 20 years ago manufactured by Portalign Tool Co. of San Diego, Calif. (a company now long gone). Even with a drill press, the number of times I have reached for this little guy is beyond count; it can perform operations that would be simply impractical or almost impossible on a drill press. The biggest difference from the original is that this one can drill holes at an angle and mount on a workbench with flat head wood screws. Nice improvements. And, if you occasionally want to edge sand using through 2 diameter sanding drums, the instructions show how to mount it under a 2-1/4 hole to do just that (see Craftsman 21 piece sanding drum kit #25262). The first thing I did when I unpacked it was to remove those pesky springs on the guide bars (they do serve a useful purpose, but not for me), remove the rubber pieces on the base (I prefer a flat machined surface), and spray it with a silicone product for smoother operation. My old Portalign still sits on one of my shelves, but I'm afraid its been replaced. Wonderful little jig, and Sears has the best price around for this little fellow.

    The Craftsman Drill Guide - not easy to use

    First, the product was missing two of the parts - the chuck key and the handle.  Still haven't been able to get them.  When using the guide I found the action to be rough; it was difficult to get the slides to compress smoothly.  It is OK on a flat, horizontal surface, but it moves around when used in other orientations.  It could benefit from a chuck that does not need a chuck key.  I would recommend looking for another brand.

    Craftsman Drill Guide

    I tried using this as a jig to drill holes for plugs on a floor. Frame was to flimsy drill was causing it to oscillate.

    Great Tool if you don't have the need for a true drill press

    The item works Perfectly as advertised! I mounted to one of my benches and ran it through all of the angles I would need to drill wood doll holes and had no problems at all!

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Broke easily

    Cross-beam broke after about 1/2 hour of use. Hopefully replacement from Sears lasts longer...

    You Get What You Pay For

    I was looking to drill a 1 1/4" hole with a spade bit in a 4x4, which was a tad deeper than my drill press could go, so I decided to order this doo-hicky after seeing someone use a similar product on youtube. My first impression of this device is that it is certainly built like you would expect for paying 18 bucks (I should have known better): cheap plastic parts in places you'd rather have metal. Furthermore, there is a fair amount of slop in the arbor, which leads to a considerable drop in accuracy as the length of the hole increases, and given time, I can see the amount of slop increasing as the bushings start to wear out (you don't get bearings this price point). My issue with the arbor slop isn't why I gave this product one star, however, it's because the aluminum sliding portion of the guide SNAPPED OFF clean while I was boring my hole with my corded drill. I would -gladly- pay 50 dollars for this product if it was actually built with some degree of precision and was meant to last.

    Did the job

    Used this tool to drill through 4x4 posts and sleeves to run cabling. Without this tool, who knows how straight the holes would have been. This tool was the key to the operation.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.
