I will just use the drill press. Interesting idea though.

Agreed on both counts. Definitely could see it working for some. If a drill press is a no-go due to limited space, this laser thing would be better than nothing.

While it gives you a visual indicator of how straight you’re drilling/boring. It does nothing mechanically to assist. Frankly, now that I think about it, those spring loaded things that attach to drills would probably be a better option.

At fist glance, I still think it’s kind of cool. But, the more I consider it, the more it strikes me as an “as seen on TV” type product.

Probably useful if you need to drill straight holes where you can’t use anything else.

There are a number of references to using an old CD as a guide that I’ve found useful on occasion.

Have your say...
