If you don’t have a drill press, (or even if you do) the Jig It Drill Guide by Rocker is a great little jig. For those who don’t have a drill press but want to use forstner bits; the drill guide helps keep your power drill steady allowing for more precise holes. For those who do have a drill press there are certain times when it’s just not possible to use it. I needed to drill some bench dog holes into my workbench. I wanted to use a forstner bit with my power drill. The Jig It Drill Guide made this easy. It kept my power drill steady, and the end result was a perfectly centered hole.
What it is:
- Made of a sturdy plastic
- The Drill Guide has an Interior Diameter: 3-½”
- The Drill Guide Measures: 2-½” high
- The Jig It Drill Guide comes with the basic guide.
What you’ll want to go with it:
- Long Shank Drill Bits from Rocker: Various Sizes
- 3/8” Stop Collar to set the depth of the drill
Overall I really like this jig. It’s rugged, and is that jig you need when you want to use Forstner Bits and it’s just not possible to use with a drill press. It’s also a Rockler product and they always make great stuff, and its pretty reasonable priced.
