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.

Very Useful

Well built. It would have been nice to have purchased this before now would have saved a ton of time. Makes it very easy to drill very precise holes.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

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.

it works

I used it for the first time to drill 1/2" (drill bit) and 7/8" (hole saw) holes in schedule 40 pipe. Despite clamping the pipe and guide to a solid table, it did not do a great job at keeping the holes straight through, however, it did help a bit with preventing the bit from walking a lot and helped me support the drill the whole time so that I could focus more on pressure and cutting fluid. The chuck has mediocre grip and the key should be larger to use comfortably. I am afraid that the important plastic parts will break. It worked in a pinch for me on a low tolerance project and I expect it to be useful on large or unwieldy objects. It should do better on softer and less demanding materials, but it could never be a replacement for a good drill press.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Perfect Drill Guide

This drill guide is the perfect solution for those times that you want to drill straight holes without worrying about it. For example I needed to drill straight holes in the studs in my home for lag screws, and this guide allowed me to do it easily. This tool does not replace the hole precission you can get with a drill press; however, you cannot use a drill press to drill holes on a wall or out in the field. This tool is perfect for what it was designed to do!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So_So

This came with one part missing (Thumbscrew). Tried to find one at Ace but they had none with metric threads. After an hour on phone with Sears I finally have one coming. There are 2 ridges on base where handle fits but the hole in base was off center so I had to taper handle to fit. Like "woodworker Lee" I had problems with carriage binding on slides. The slides have a depth stop on one side thereby compressing springs at different rate. Remedy = I cut a piece of 1/2" PVC 3/8" long for opposite side, or, just remove depth stop. Quality? Not so good but whadda expect from China! I really hate buying something new and then have to modify it to make it work!
