This Combo Kit includes both the Stretcher Drilling Guide and the Seat Drilling Guide These Guides allow 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; and easily drill holes in chair seat blanks for leg, arm post and spindle mortises. You can see it in action on our YouTube channel : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYMM9QvyJmXQLsyuzHQ4aHg
These Guides require a drill capable of accepting 1/2" shank drill bits; and a 1/2" shank brad-point bit with a long center-spur to work correctly for acute angles (Trident Drill Bit). These Guides should work fine if you are already using these types of "chairmaking" bits with a 1/2" shank.
The Stretcher Drilling Guide 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

Threaded Rod with 3 jam nuts
1/2" Drill extension shaft - 10" Long

1. The Stretcher Drilling Guide is made for a 6 degree reamed holes. Please contact us if you use a different reamer; We should be able to accommodate you.
2. 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).
