Introducing the Woodpeckers Auto-Line Drill Guide the tool keeps your drill bit perfectly perpendicular while you drill, but it goes further with a versatile base and fence system that makes it simple to keep your hole locations right on target. Please note this product is not recommended to be used with an impact driver.

The Woodpeckers Auto-Line Drill Guide starts with a high quality 12.7mm (1/2") chuck supported by a pair of sealed ball bearings. The shaft end is a standard quick-release fitting that will fit any cordless or corded drill. The chuck carrier holds a pair of Teflon sleeves which ride on two steel columns, keeping the chuck perfectly vertical while you drill. One column has a spring to help you control your cut and the other has an adjustable stop collar. The stop collar column has a taper milled into it. The stop needs only fingertip pressure to hold position making it nearly impossible to knock the stop out of position when the lock is tightened onto the taper.

The base of the guide has laser engraved centre-lines on the perimeter of the opening. All you need to do is align the bright white index marks with the marks on your stock for precise hole location. There is also a vee-groove milled into the base to safely drill round stock. The opening in the base has clearance for drills up to 19mm (3/4"). When you need to drill holes larger than 19mm (3/4"), simply remove the column caps, turn the chuck carrier around so it is outside the base and drill up to 50mm (2") holes.

When you need holes centred on a board, the guide comes with centring pins in the base, rotate until one pin is tight against each side of the stock. Now your bit is perfectly centred. It works on stock up to 79mm (3-1/8") wide. The centring pins store conveniently right on the top of the base when they’re not in use. Woodpeckers machined the Allen head wrench to install the pins onto the bottom of the column caps meaning you’ll never have to go searching for the right sized Allen wrench.

The versatile fence adjusts to the base along a pair of steel guide rods. As shown in the photos above, the fence can slide under the base for working close to an edge, or turn it around to get the maximum distance. When you're working on a narrow edge, position the fence so the broad face provides extra support and when you're not using the fence at all, turn it so the thin edge provides an "outrigger" to improve stability. The base is drilled and tapped for the fence guide rods on all four edges, so there's always a direction you can extend the fence. The basic fence comes with rods with a capacity of 178mm (7").
