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

I picked a few of these up for my guys on a project we are working on. Helped streamline transfer punching and speeding assembly! Fast shipping from GW too and kicka** pricing!

Poor chip ejection, soft alloy tips make these frustratingly " ok " for occasional use. I purchased these on the advertised pretense that they were " VIX BITS " which they are NOT! A cheaply "Made in China" version of the USA made ones. I had already wore out a set of these after replacing my original "Vix Bits" set that went M.I.A. I returned these as soon as i opened up my package...not what i expected from 'Garrett Wade'

Not The Real Thing
Reviewed By:   (Fowler, CA) 
These are not the real US made Vix bits. The ones I received from GW were so badly made that it was almost impossible to drill a hole centered in the screw hole chamfer. The sliding mechanism had so much play in it that inevitably the drill drifted off center. And the sliding mechanism does not compress far enough for the drill to penetrate more than about an eighth of an inch. I ended up buying the real ones from another source and they are far better in construction and accuracy.

Response By: Garrett Wade Tech Department
Thank you for your review on the Set of 5 Hex Shank Vix Bits. We are sorry to hear that you are disappointed in them.  The ones you have are indeed from Taiwan. If you would like to return them for a refund, please feel free to, using the return label which was included. You mentioned that you ordered real ones from another source. We have checked with our product specialist to see if there is a better alternative. He said that we have USA drill bits (only). They can be found on our website. The item numbers are 66K08.01 to 66K08.04. The sizes are 5/64" to 11/64th", and they are sold individually. He also mentioned that he could order the Full Taper Point Set, item #66K01.07, if you needed to order more in the future. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience.

I just loved these drill bits as it is so much easier to center holes for installing hinges and accessories.
