Questions & Answers

Is this or any other drill stop set sold in the stores so that I can get it immediately?

Also: Do these fit all (or most) drills?
Asked by: Delaine
Lowe's has a 7 piece set of Kobalt stops for $7.38 usually in stock. They have the same issues as this set, but with care they do work but be careful and check often.

The bit was new and it looked ok, but when you tighten the stop it always ended up crooked on the bit. I returned the product for a refund

You shouldn't have a problem if you tighten the screw pretty good. I used it to drill holes on my brand new corvette decklid, and since it did that flawless, I trust it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from well, it was a good idea..but i thought that these would be very useful if there came a time when i needed to be very precise with a twist drill. Unfortunately i was wrong. It could be that i did not tighten the set screw hard enough, but it seems that the way these are attached to the drill bit you cannot get them secured enough to use properly. The first time (and every time since) i tried to use them, they slipped up the shaft of the drill bit. You cannot apply any pressure when drilling with these, or else they will slip and you will end up with a problem where you have drilled too far. overall i believe this was i good idea that failed to be produced effectively. But then i am very critical of such things.
