What is the interior width of the guide? How wide of a piece of wood will fit in the guide?

Asked by: Tim
The work that you would do on the inside is drilling a hole in round stock like a doll of pipe. Most everything else you put the guide on the object you are drilling. It's also good for self centering stock on edge. The two pins provided screw in the the bottom then turn the guide until the pins tuch the wood on each side to find the center. I hope the answers your question.

Drill Guide and Chuck is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hot garbage. A failure on every level. I bought this because I needed a way to drill straight into a workpiece. I knew it couldn't replace a drill press, but I was in a hurry and I figured, how bad could it be? The answer: very bad. In theory the carriage and vertical guides help to ensure accurate tracking of the drill bit, but in practice the flexible plastic that makes up the vast majority of this tool flexes so badly under load that every single hole is drilled at a slightly different angle. An absolute disaster of a tool.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was very disappointed with this product. Quality was poor. Hard to get bit to go straight down even with adjustable feature. A lot of things could have be made designed better to make this product work as intended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It broke It is an adequate tool. Somewhat wobbly but this is likely inherent in its design. I used it perhaps for 30 holes and it bound up-now it is useless.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Guide That Doesn't I picked this up to add some bench-dog holes to a new set of workbenches that I had built. Assembly was easy, but I quickly noticed that the bearing for the chuck was not ideal for this. Once I chucked up a bit, and this to my drill, the end of the bit moved in an almost 1/8" circle. Also, when assembling the guide, I set both sides to zero, but it was clearly not square.
