The company is based in Illinois and their website states that their products are "engineered in the USA". That doesn't really answer the "where made" question though.
I did not experience that. Might want to exchange it.
You pop out the red rubber non-slip pieces out of their holes and you can use those holes to attach the drill mate to your workpiece or to a jig.
No idea. Aside from wondering why I got this question, did you call Milescraft directly, or try another vendor? Google the model number and see what turns up.
Yes, but any one of the holes is used for the Chuck Key, which would then have to be relocated & hopefully not lost.
I use it with my Milwaukee, so I'd say yes.
I wouldn’t use this for that purpose. I had to use a hammer drill with a masonry bit for my toilet flange repair. I wouldn’t use this with a hammer drill. Perhaps if you have plywood subfloors it would be helpful but still not necessary.
The base can be screwed to your workpiece.
I don't think you'll want to put the log INTO the drill mate. I'd attach a jig to the base of the drill mate that would hold it OVER the log. It has about a 5" stroke. So you might need to drill the last few inches by hand (or see if you could flip the log over).
You can, but set the drill to drill mode, not hammer drill mode. Most hammer drills have 3 settings, hammer drill, drill, drive.
