with a hole saw and a 1/2" drill with a side handle 6-8" depending on the material, realize the torque involved and drill slow with little pressure.

Answer: 
You don't have to place the wood inside the guide. You can place the guide on top of a piece of wood so the width is not an issue. You will loose a fraction of the drill depth by doing this but it is insignifigant

Answer: 
I do not believe the shaft threads are the same. The real problem is that its not heavy duty enough for the torque a half inch chuck type drill can produce. I would use the drill guide to make a pilot hole through the material then any larger drill should follow the pilot hole thus keeping the bore straight.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great baluster jig First of all this is not a precision drill guide, but for the money I have no complaints. This is my second one and I have drilled thousands of holes with the first. My particular use for it is drilling baluster holes for stair and deck railings. Added a jig of my own to glide on 2x4's for aluminum deck balusters. Spray a little silicone on it and it does the job nicely. By the way the first one was damaged by my helper dropping a 6x6 post on it, it was still hanging in there. September 8, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by not worth it not very sturdy didn't keep angle very well only good for smsll projects May 31, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Functional It only does 5 degree increments, and getting the right ones are a challenge as well. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This Drill Guide works great! This guide work great! Light weight, yet sturdy. East to adjust to the angle and depth you want. April 26, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Helpful Not the most sturdy. I did help with uniform holes April 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CHEAP If I could give this a zero I would! This product could use a few Improvements. It needs some type of positive adjustment, like grooves in main degree increments to help the weakness of this product be more accurate, reliable and sturdy. It also could use a larger base or at least tabs for clamping. It needs a spring loaded drill bit Chuck to reduce hole blowout when bit comes out, and needs a separate depth guide to improve accuracy. I would not recommend this product as it is. It is also grossly over priced. This company couldn't have vetted this thing before putting it in a box. February 10, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by helpful easy assembly, not very sturdy, had to add a base. April 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best little device for a drill This little "drill press" with a little patience and thought in the set up will allow anyone to drill holes at angle needed perfectly straight. It saved me a lot of time and trouble making accurate holes needed in metal and wood. March 23, 2016
