A Steady Hand Means Safety And More Control
One of the most frustrating things when using a drill is not getting a perfectly straight hole. Even the pros may need a little help from time to time. See if the Kreg KDG-6000 Drilling Guide can help you with this problem and drill more confidently.
Kreg KDG-6000 Drilling Guide – The Big Deal
The Kreg Drilling Guide is one of several portable options for helping you drill straight holes. Many drilling guides are large and bulky and attach to drill presses or other equipment. Those guides can also be harder on the wallet than you’d like, especially if you don’t anticipate using them very often. The Kreg handheld drilling guide is more beginner-friendly due to its portability and simple design.
It has six hardened-steel guide holes, ranging from 1/8-inch to 1/2-inch. The holes hold your drill bit in position to help you drill straight (either vertically or horizontally). It also has a slotted ridge at the bottom that fits snugly on the edge of 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch materials. That makes it easier to drill centered perpendicular holes. Each hole has a raised alignment marker to ensure accurate positioning.
