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 right tool for the best results

    Greg, 12/15/2018 These bits do exactly what they are designed to do. Centered drill holes with no tear out on the edges. If you are a serious craftsman, using these Vixbits is using the right tool for the best results.
  • It works...

    Anthony Galiana, 10/12/2018 Does what I need it to..
  • When is a Vix Bit not a Vix Bit

    Basil, 10/8/2018 I take complete responsibility for not carefully reading the description. These are not real Vix Bits made in the USA, they are "Vix style" bits made in Taiwan. That being said, I still give them 4 stars because they seem to be quality tools.
  • Quality tools

    Steve C, 10/30/2017 These bits work great. Much beefier than my old ones.
  • good and bad

    peter cole, 10/17/2017 I had hoped they were made in USA however, the spring seems much stronger than friend's set i hsd borrowed, so i am hopeful
  • Vix Bits

    MF Fanelli, 10/2/2016 They actually work
  • Very Handy

    Chris, 7/2/2015 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!
  • Replacement Bits

    Bob Dietrich, 4/23/2015 Hard to find proper size replacement bits nice.
  • Almost Perfect

    Bob, 9/20/2014 These work perfectly as advertised. One star deduction for not including a 5/64 hex wrench when buying a complete set. I like to keep a dedicated when to sets that require a wrench."
  • Hinge Installations

    Norvil Feguson, 8/31/2014 I just loved these drill bits as it is so much easier to center holes for installing hinges and accessories.
  • Excelente

    Jorge Sanchez, 7/29/2014 Muy buenas herramientas, excelente su calidad, hay para mucho tiempo en esta herramientas.
  • Vix Bits

    Tim , 7/7/2014 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.
  • Great Price

    Mike Rowland, 6/15/2014 Great price for 5 bits.
  • Very Handy Tools

    Hal, 6/10/2014 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?

    Cor R., 4/21/2014 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

    Kris, 3/3/2013 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

    Daniel M Mueller, 1/1/2013 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.
  • Vix Bits at Work

    David Halley, 1/4/2011 I had bought a couple of centering bits from a local dealer and when I was at work doing installations of some very pricey English door hardware, my employer noticed them and mentioned that they were like Vix Bits but not as nice. When I got home I googled Vix Bits and the link that came up was my old pal Garrett Wade. I followed the link and to my surprise Garrett Wade was having a special on the very thing that I wanted. At the usual price I might have decided to wait another pay check or two before I sprang into action but at the special price I could have a whole set of Vix Bits for about what I paid locally for the two knock-offs. Perhaps the biggest surprise was that even though I made my order on December 20th during the Christmas rush, the Vix Bits were on my porch when I got home on December 23rd. Pretty amazing. I'm very pleased with my Garrett Wade experience.
  • Vix Bits

    Ran Sheller, 12/4/2010 Compared to other house brands these bits offer the best fit and finish of all I have tried. Price is great on a quality set.They drill straight, adjust easily, perform well and did I mention the price? If you been waiting, get em now.
  • Tumbleweed

    Steve, 7/7/2010 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
