No place for a drill press?

It is practically impossible to drill at a specific angle freehand. This carefully engineered drill guide helps you to drill at angles over a 110° range. The UJK drill guide is in effect a versatile and portable smaller drill press. The portability of this guide ensures that you can drill virtually anywhere. Set at 90° it produces perpendicular holes. Quadrants on each side of the base allow angle setting at ±60°. A threaded knob on one side and the auxiliary handle on the other ensure any chosen angle setting is secure. The underside of the base has a rubberized high friction pad to help steady the guide. The large aperture in the base gives a clear view of the drilling mark and allows the use of bits up to 60mm diameter. Integral v-guides mean you can drill round the stock or pipes. The base has holes for fixing the guide in place onto a jig or sub-base.
The chuck guide assembly runs between twin steel guide bars. Bronze bushes ensure a smooth action between the assembly and guide bars. There is enough space between the bars to accommodate most drills. A precision-machined main shaft runs inside another bronze bush. The drive shaft is a 1/4" hex allowing you to use either corded or cordless drills. The drill shaft ends in a 3/8" (10mm) capacity chuck. There is a depth stop for accurate boring and countersinking.
The UJK Drill Guide is solid and offers a great deal of flexibility. Two pins, stored in the chuck guide assembly, when screwed into the base allow self-centering drilling, for example when fitting a lock mortice into a door. The capacity when using self-centering pins is 85mm. Optional 1/2 inch (13mm) chuck and Self-Centering Vice available.
The UJK Self-Centering Drill Vise fits perfectly inside this drill guide.
Enhance Workholding with Drill Vise Accessory
Designed specifically for use with this drill guide (but a great complement to any drill press), UJK's Self-Centering Vise fits directly onto the UJK Drill Guide to ensure stock is always perfectly centered and perpendicular. This vise also features V-notches to hold round or square stock, while its four steel guide bars ensure smooth and consistent clamping pressure. Visit the UJK Self-Centering Vise page to learn more about this useful upgrade.

Warranty & Returns
Action is true and has no wobble. Components are well made and solid. Sliding action is a bit rough, so I had to lubricate the guide rods. Rubber mat on bottom is a complete joke. Be ultra careful sliding the device over softer wood. I plan on cutting out my own, as manufactured rubber part is garbage. Base is a tad too small for proper stability. I recommend it with the above caveats.
