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.

    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.

      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.
