There is almost nothing more frustrating when installing fitted hardware (such as hinges) than having your pilot hole accidentally run off center. The screw itself then tends to be drawn off center, spoiling the perfection you are striving for.

With their conical shaped guide and spring loaded inside drill bit, these Vix-style pro bits have a 1/4" hex shank so they will snap in and out of modern drivers, as well as fit any standard chuck. Replacement drills are available. Made In Taiwan.
  • Set of 3: 5/64, 7/64 & 9/64" drills for screw sizes ranging from 3 to 10
  • Set of 5 includes same as set of three plus: 11/64 & 13/64" drills for screw sizes 12, 14 & 16

Why Did I Wait So Long?
Reviewed By:   (Foothill Ranch, California) 
I am a fairly cynical person when it comes to gadgets that purport to make my life easier, but the set of three hex shank Vix bits that I recently purchased simply work and they have definitely made my life easier when it comes to placing pilot "exactly" where I want them to be placed. I am sure (I hope) that I am not the only person who has had problems in the past with installing mounting hardware because the my pilot holes ended up being off by "just a smidge..." This problem is now something that I do not have to worry about any longer and I am kicking myself for not getting the Vix bits earlier. The installation of my door hinges during my last project went without a hitch and to top it off, the installation of the hinges went much faster than ever before. Less frustration and less time is a good thing in my book...

Vix Bit Set
Reviewed By:   (Sunny Southern, California) 
It's not easy to find a complete set of these bits. While the GW price is usually kind of dear, when they're on sale a lot more reasonable. Disappointments: The set did not come in a box (the catalog did not say there would be one, however). Also, some of the bits were engraved with the screw size, some were not. I fixed this by attaching a label to the barrel showing the bit size and what screw size #s they were for. I'll build a case for them later, right now they live in a small pouch.

Good product
Reviewed By:   (Gray Court, South Carolina) 
This set is a very good value. Works very smoothly. Drill is centered very well for precise hole drilling. End seats into projects well for accurate and quality finished product. Love using them.

I got the 3 piece set and these all work great. They're good and solid with a nice sturdy fell to them. They really make drilling centered holes a snap

Waste of Money
Reviewed By:   (Hewitt, TX) 
These drill bits perform exactly as described. However, I have been unable to find replacement bits, making these items worthless. Since they are longer than normal drill bits, regular bits don't fit. Had them for years, used them for days.
