      General Tools has grown to become the recognized industry leader for specialty hand tools and instruments. Drill Stops are used to prevent excessive bit penetration in doweling and other drilling applications. Attaching a Drill Stop to the twist or brad-point drill bit assures that hole is drilled to the specified depth. The set includes six, cold-rolled steel Drill Stops in a black oxide finish. The Stops attach easily to standard drill bits with a set screw and hex wrench (included). The set also includes a reusable snap blister for storage.

      • Designed for use with doweling jigs (not included) and brad-point or twist drill bits (not included)
      • Helps control drilling depth when drilling holes for joining 2 surfaces
      • Positive depth control allows for exact hole depths for multiple drilling jobs
      • Made from cold-rolled, high-speed steel
      • Black oxide finish

      • Various sizes of the collars are 3/16 in. Dia, 1/4 in. Dia, 5/16 in. Dia, 3/8 in. Dia, 7/16 in. Dia, 1/2 in. Dia

      • well, it was a good idea..but
      • May 07, 2010

      i thought that these would be very useful if there came a time when i needed to be very precise with a twist drill. Unfortunately i was wrong. It could be that i did not tighten the set screw hard enough, but it seems that the way these are attached to the drill bit you cannot get them secured enough to use properly. The first time (and every time since) i tried to use them, they slipped up the shaft of the drill bit. You cannot apply any pressure when drilling with these, or else they will slip and you will end up with a problem where you have drilled too far. overall i believe this was i good idea that failed to be produced effectively. But then i am very critical of such things.
