Hi, I have just joined this forum with a question about buying an angle - vertical drill guide for a hand held drill. I see them onine but I cannot find a supplier in ireland to look or buy from. Could anyone help me with this please. It is a one off job that needs some level of consistent accuracy, but I don't want to invest in an entire drill press.

May thanks

Axminster Tool Centre in Devon do various drill guides, and deliver outside the UK.

My (rather basic) answer at present to drilling vertically has been to buy circular bullseye spirit levels for my two cordless drills. (Same supplier, about £3.50 each.) The idea was to position the drill exactly vertical, then glue the bullseye level onto the back end (which is uppermost when drilling vertically downwards). Not really able to comment yet on how well this works, as I only glued them today...
