Get Brad's tips! in pins

I see a lot of people having problems with accuracy. The problem is that the bits that come with them wiggle a bit when you start drilling. If you use nail tipped bits, they are definitely accurate enough for the woodworking hobbyist.

Pros
  • Everything is fine!
Cons
  • Speed

ACCURATE, RELIABLE, AMAZING

First, the kit offers superior tool storage quality and the QUALITY of the tool INSIDE EXCEEDS the first impression of a protective case signaling the value of the tools inside. Simply put, the photos don't do POWERTEC justice. These dowel guides are rock solid and EXTREMELY PRECISE! GREAT!

Pros
  • New
Cons
  • Not bad, but...

As best advertised in Pins

Firstly the price of this jigging kit is one of the best I have seen since I was about to buy such a kit. The drills are made of good material and cut perfectly. The kit contains 3 templates, each with 2 different sizes of guides: 3 drill bits and the necessary accessories. This kit is very reasonably priced and one of the best quality I've seen.

Pros
  • Excellent construction
Cons
  • A few small things

Do not buy on pins

I definitely should have read the reviews before buying. As others have said, there is no precision with this device. There are at least two oblique axes - the first is the angle between the block and the alignment line on the plastic window. It can be manually retracted to 90 degrees and easily moved while drilling. The second is the size of the pilot hole - it's too big and doesn't fit neatly in the drill. All this leads to a terrible seizure.

Pros
  • Quality workmanship
Cons
  • Available in white only

Take your time and be precise

Take your time! Make sure your estimates are correct. Before use, make sure the tool is in perfect condition and set to 90Β° and adjust if necessary, and don't just take it out of the box and use it with a tick! I personally tested it and made sure everything was ok and took the time to make accurate marks and align the tool and everything fit like a glove. I'm sure it's a bit off as I used store bought wood with no leveling and it can be a bit off even with real material but I don't think…

Pros
  • Absolutely amazing!
Cons
  • Will be added later

Quality and precision tool

I was looking for an accurate dowel tool. I thought it would be a good tool and easy to use so I went with it. First impression is the clear plexiglass part that Tool is very thick and the black part that has real drill guides is a heavy piece of metal Very impressed with the quality of the materials used The guides are very accurate - all I had to do was make sure my marks were on of my work lined up with the marks on the drilling template. I then lined up the template with my marks, secured…

Pros
  • DIMENSIONS: 1/4" | 3/8" | 1/2" Dowel Inserter and Drill Bit
Cons
  • Some Errors

Bracket broke on second use

I do not write reviews for purchases from Revain but my experience with this jig set has led me to do so. I bought this light in July and immediately used it for a project. This worked decently, but the mount's dowel holes have too much play to drill precise holes. Regardless, it worked for what I needed. A few months later I received the lamp for the second time to use on a project. I lined up the mount properly, inserted the included drill, but as soon as I plugged in my brushless drill, the…

Pros
  • INCLUDES: This premium fixing kit includes all three POWERTEC fixings plus interlocking cobalt drill bits, locking rings, step-by-step instructions and a hard carrying case (see product description for full details).
Cons
