    Q:will this work on a 4 and three quarter round post

    Answer This Question

    A:  The width of the base will allow for this, but it may be difficult to keep the DrillMate stable given how the feet are spaced.

      Awesome tool accessory but, with a small hiccup.
      I Just received The Drillmate 1318 and I started to play around with it. 1: It is almost a the perfect tool accessory that helped me drill a hole in a straight downward angle. 2: Even drilling a hole into a pipes and wooden dowels without even the bit slipping 3: with the design of the base, I can drill a center. The Drillmate 1318 is awesome. However there is one slight hiccup though. The DM-1318 should have an upgraded model that is equipped with a 1/2 chuck instead of a 3/8 chuck.

          Inaccurate and wobbly
          I bought this to drill holes for pins in wooden tent poles because an 8’ foot pole won’t fit in a drill press. Thankfully the poles were wide enough that off center pins weren’t an issue. For any detail work this product won’t help.

            Great price for a great tool that helps drill a straight hole
            Bought this drill guide to replace an older one (different brand) to use on a project installing new balusters on our staircase. This one is mostly metal, the handle is a good idea to help hold it in place. Suggestions for improvement, make the handle able to switch sides, and allow the guide to pivot in the opposite direction, these would have helped when I was drilling holes in the underside of the hand-rail.

            Great tool
            Excellent tool. Seems very well build. Assembly was a but wonky but not too difficult. Very excited to use it, then I could give a better review, but having assembled it and given a little test run I’m very happy with the purchase.

            Handy Tool
            This Milescraft DrillMate Portable Multi-Angle Drill Guide is a pretty handy tool to have around, but there are a few caveats. First, you have to understand up front that this is not a drill press. You can use it as somewhat of a drill press if you're in a pinch but really it's just a guide to keep your holes straight and true. I can't be the only person out there that has a problem with crooked holes, because that leads to your screws and bolts going in crooked and not sitting flush to your workpiece. It's easy enough to insert a bit into this piece and then hook it up to your drill and go. I personally like to use it as a guide when I'm drilling into a wall or a floor and I need to be plumb and level. The caveats are as follows: 1) There is some side to side play when you're pressing down on it, because there's a spring on only one arm. However, if you're slow and careful there's no issue. 2) There is also some ability to twist at the upper end of the arms. Again, be careful and this won't be an issue. 3) The chuck is a 3/8" chuck, so it may not be able to take all of your bits if you're used to using a 1/2" drill. 4) The instructions are not great. During assembly you should install the bottom screws into the position anchors first, then slide them into the frame and screw down the poles onto them. This is not explained well through the provided diagram. 5) When changing angles you have to unscrew both poles and re-tighten them once you achieve your desired angle. This may seem like a lot, but it's really not and the tool is very helpful. I'm glad I purchased it and would do so again. Now, for my cabinet-making, I'll be getting a drill press for the hinge cups.

              Very good
              Drilling threw concrete wall using a hammer drill for hanging a mirror in the bathroom, using platic hole plugs to fit the screw holds very well. Must use a mason drill bit regular twist drill bit won't drill well on concrete.
