Hi, Where is the Milescraft DrillMate made? Thanks

Asked by Bruce August 10, 2020

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.

Does the base have holes to secure to wood with screws while you drill?

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.

Can this thing be screwed onto a base? Does it have 4 holes so I can anchor it onto a table?

Asked by Joe December 9, 2019

Answers

Yes, but any one of the holes is used for the Chuck Key, which would then have to be relocated & hopefully not lost.

Can I mount a DeWalt battery powered drill on this drill press?

I use it with my Milwaukee, so I'd say yes.

Will this aid in drilling out a toilet closet flange?

Asked by RJ September 9, 2019

Answers

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.

How does this attach? I need to drill upside-down into the bottom of a beam. Is this possible?

The base can be screwed to your workpiece.

What is the maximum diameter log I can fit into the guide? Can I use it on 6" diameter cedar logs for mortise & tenon jt

Asked by Roy May 26, 2019
7
Answers

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).

Can i use this with impact drill?

Asked by Ric May 3, 2019

Answers

You can, but set the drill to drill mode, not hammer drill mode. Most hammer drills have 3 settings, hammer drill, drill, drive.

I bought this to drill 56 holes in a board for a thread spool holder. It worked great, and all the spindles are standing straight. The set-up directions were not detailed enough for me, but a YouTube video made assembly easy.

Very sturdy, mostly metal build. The red/maroon parts and the depth stop are the only plastic parts. The unit I received has a bit of wobble, but it's still more accurate than my Harbor Freight drill press. Do not buy this to replace a drill press or for jobs that require precision. This will give you almost 90 degree holes at a decent quality. To get the best quality holes as possible, I had to use clamps to keep the base as steady as possible. Overall, I would recommend this product and would keep it. It's very handy for use in projects where you need to drill 90 degree holes in odd places where a drill press will not work.

I was considering buying this device some time back and ended up buying a drill press instead. However there are still situations where you need to make perfectly vertical hole in something too big or too heavy to be placed on a drill press' table. Accu Drill Mate is what you need in those situations. Solidly and aesthetically made Accu Drill Mate requires some assembly, which takes 3 minutes. It takes drill bits from 1.5 to 10 mm. It is easy to use. Not only it enables you to drill in perfect 90 degree angle but you can also set it for 75, 60 and 45 degrees to the left or right. It also allows you to drill in pipes or cylinders thanks to the cut in the base of it. It is equipped with a stop to prevent you from drilling too deep. Finally it makes lining up the drill with a center of your stock fast and easy. Size of a base, around 4.5 x 6", is a good compromise between stability and ability to fit confined spaces. Overall height is 13.5". Overall very neat device and certainly worth the money. I'm very pleased with it.
