Using The Drill Bit Hole Saw Guide Jig Fixture

Drilax Diamond Drill Bit Hole Saw Guide


Jig Fixture Vacuum Suction Base with Water Coolant Hole for Tiles, Glass, Fish Tanks, Marble, Granite, Ceramic, Porcelain Guides Holes up to 3 1/4 Inches

Quick Tip 1: Using diamond hole saws, it does not matter which way you run your drill. If you are concerned with the nuts unscrewing, we suggest you run drill in reverse (counter-clockwise). This will prevent nuts from unscrewing.

Quick Tip 2: You do not need the guide for the entire duration of the drilling. Once you have made a mark on the material, the hole saw will keep in position.

Quick Tip 3: Do not forget to use water. It is OK to stop drilling for a cleanup and cooling.

How to use the Guide:

1. Adjust the sliding plate for the size of the hole saw – drill bit you want to use. Once side of the plate is for sizes up to 3 inches and flip the plate for larger sizes up to 3 1/4″

2. Fix the guide using the suction base exactly where you want to drill the hole. Check the drill guide location and slider position before you start drilling. Measure – check twice and drill once.

3. Using water as coolant, start the hole. You can spray the water or use the integrated hole.

4. Use the guide until the drill bit – hole saw makes an initial mark deep enough to keep the bit in position. You can remove the guide and continue drilling in the same spot.

5. While drilling, keep using water to cool down the diamond drill bit – hole saw. Spray bottle, running water or a small water pool around the hole can be used to cool the tool.

  1. I just received drilax saw guide jig and can not understand how to make a 1/4 inch bit work in this. Please reply or I will have to return thank you.

    1. Thank you buying the DRILAX guide.
      To use the guide with small (such as 1/4 inch) bits, you will need to remove the bearings.
      The guide will still hold the bits in place.
      In addition to removing the bearings, you will also need to switch to the small side of the plate.

  2. I’ve just received my guide and it’s missing rubber bushing. Can you assist?

    1. No problem. Just send us your order number and shipping address.
