Drill Guide Block - Self Centering

$24.99

Product Description

This is the culmination of a few years of experimenting with the best way to drill holes in skis.  This drill guide has the same size bushing as a standard ski jig, so any stepped drill bit is compatible.  A thin textured rubber pad on the base ensures that the guide block stays put once you clamp it in place.  The tethered centering pin fits tightly into the bushing and aids in centering the bushing over a center punched dimple, paper template, or existing hole.  You no longer need a steady hand to drill holes in skis with confidence!

  1. Worth it.

    Posted by Michael on 26th May 2017

    I was skeptical about needing this for my mount, but after using it I must say it was totally worth it. While it is definitely possible to drill straight by eye, this just took a lot of the stress out of the process. Maybe even more useful than as a drill guide was using this as a guide for the tap. Way less stressful and it allowed me to have much more confidence in my tap orientation. On previous mounts without a guide I was constantly scared that I my drill or tap wasn't perfectly vertical. With this guide, all that fear is gone and you just have to make sure the hole or drill mark is centered.

  2. Superb easy to use solution

    This drill block makes a challenging tech install a doable prospect for those considering the DIY binding process. Indispensable - simple and easy to use - priceless.

  3. Pretty Nifty

    Posted by Mike on 31st Oct 2016

    Having had access to a proper jig and tools at a shop for a number of years it was hard to go back to paper mounts and duct taped drill bits. This is an awesome way to get a more professional mount without breaking the bank or buying/storing a drill press. Pretty self explanatory, I mounted skis with this tool on the kitchen counter, but a proper ski vise would have made it much more convenient. It's a solid tool and I expect to use it for many more mounts in the years to come.

  4. Handing tool for mounting with templates

    Posted by Josh on 24th Dec 2015

    This tool is helpful in regards to keeping the drill bit vertically aligned. I don't find it much more accurate in terms of locating the hole over the template mark (that works well freehand if done carefully with a punch) but this keeps the drill bit and/or punch perfectly vertical which is great. I also used this to re-drill and reuse some plugged holes and it worked very well for that.

  5. Amazing tool with multiple purposes!

    Posted by Doug on 30th Oct 2015

    This is my multi-tool of ski mounting and inserts. It is great for converting traditional mount holes into insert holes, I have not used it a ton with paper templates since I own a Jigarex, but I have used it to redrill plugged and epoxyed holes without a problem. What I find this tool most useful for is tapping the drilled holes, before I was always concerned about getting the tap straight and keeping it consistent. With this little guy I can center it over a hole, place the tap through it and get a perfectly straight tap every time! Saves a bunch of time and stress, add a quick hand clamp to it and its almost fool proof.

  6. Excellent product

    Simple, effective and seems likely to last indefinitely. Whether using a centerpunch and paper templates, or redrilling existing holes, this guide block was absolutely worth it. It keeps your drill bit vertiical as well. You can keep it in place with a strong clamp, and I used my other hand too.
