Drilling jig not "square"

Postby rossorabbit@hotmail.com » Sun Nov 06, 2011 8:14 am

My problem is that my DJ is making the hole on one side slightly off center than the other. Is there any way to fix this without having to send it back to BCT?

We have never had this issue before.
How far out of line are the two holes?
Is this with all bushings or just certain sizes?


Thanks!

It is not much, about 1/32 of an inch or less, but it does make a difference when using dowels. It is with all the bushings, since it happens even before I put a bushing in. If I mark a line with my centerscribe, the DJ is out of square on one side.

Thanks.

1/32" is a LOT.
I will send you an email with some information. I'd like to pick this up and fix it for you.

Thanks!

David,

This tool is mostly meant to do smaller scale wood drilling, but can be used in a limited fashion on metal. The jaws will hold smaller round objects such as dowels or pipes. What size pipe and what material where you wanting to use it on?

Best,
Rutager
