This drill guide will not work with a hammer drill. If al you want is to guide a standard drill for straight holes, it will work.

I need to drill a 6" hole for a floating shelf support, will this work?
Asked by: Ver
You can use this to drill a 2" hole and then finish it by hand with a longer drill bit. It should go pretty straight with a 2" head start.

Drill Guide and Chuck is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 67.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be great but not ... Rebuilt the stairs in our home and had to drill a lot of holes for wrought iron spindle and lag bolts. The drill guide did enable me to get the job done for a fairly reasonable price. So ... if you can't find anything better go ahead and buy this jig. I found the tool extremely annoying to use ... the build quality is poor, the sliding arms tend to stick although lubrication clearly helps, the black rubber feet on the bottom of the tool leave black marks, there is a small tightening key that you absolutely need to tighten down your drill bits but there is no place to attach the key to the unit so that the key is easy to lose or misplace, the angle adjustment guide is very hard to read, etc. etc. When I first got the guide I wanted to smash it to bits as everything about it was so junky. But, having no better option I stuck with it and was able to do a good job on my project. Bottom line: Gets the job done but a high school student could design a better product.

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.

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 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 Don't waste your money Absolute garbage - chuck bearing bound up after drilling two holes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk I bought this on clearance from my local HD. My Dad had a tool similar to this one that was all aluminum and worked great. This one though is all plastic the slides stick from one side to the other to the point it is unusable, and the screws also fall out of it in the toolbox rendering it useless.

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 1 out of 5 by from Ok, not great When I got this, it took an hour to get it together, there was plastic in the threads of one of the screw holes and it took heating it up to scrape it out. This is not a precision device! Not that it should be at this price, but the chuck is very shaky and your holes will not be perfect. I used it to drill 6 holes close together in a 1.75" block. The holes on the other side were VERY random. Not even close to be uniform. I think I could have done them better by hand.
