The Stretcher Drilling Guide Mk II allows you to easily drill holes in chair legs for stretchers, and in chair back posts for arm rests, from 6" to 22" from the seat. You can see it in action on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYMM9QvyJmXQLsyuzHQ4aHg
This Basic Kit includes the following:
Large Base Unit
Small Base Unit
Four Threaded Rods with two jam nuts per rod
1/2" Drill extension shaft - 18" Long
1/2" Coupler - To connect the shaft to your 1/2" shank drill bit
1/2" Rod end Bearing
This Guide is made for a 6 degree reamed holes. Please let us know if you use a different reamer (Lee Valley Reamer, 11 degree reamer, etc.) We should be able to accommodate you. Also, this Guide requires a drill capable of accepting 1/2" shank drill bits; and a 1/2" shank brad-point bit with a long center-brad to work correctly for acute angles. We sell theses types of bits under our Trident line of drill bits. This Guide should work fine if you are already using these types of "chairmaking" bits with a 1/2" shank.
1. Please add the "Machined Flat for Set-Screw" item under the accessories category if you would like a flat machined onto the shank of the the drill bit(s) if ordered with the Guide. This flat is for the set-screw of the 1/2 coupler we provide with our drill extensions (one "item" is needed for each flat you want machined).
2. The Drill Extension comes with a flat machined on one end of the shaft for the 1/2 coupler.
