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

The Vix bits turned the very frustrating experience of trying to center the tiny screws on a brass butt hinge into a piece of cake. Perfect every time. Thanks Garrett Wade.

These "Vix Bits" take a lot of worry out of aligning and centering hinges and latches. Great to have in the tool box.

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...
