Vix Bits are self-centering Drill Guides. Vix bits let you mount hinges the easy, professional way! Drill guides are most useful when mounting hardware such as hinges, handles, drawer slides etc. Using the drill guide insures the pilot hole will be located in the center of the hardware hole. Vix Bits make a tough job almost foolproof. The beveled self-aligning tip fits nicely into the hardware and is spring loaded so that once aligned the drilling pressure compresses the spring and extends the bit into the workpiece.

I love this product. I use it for drilling piano hinges. I only wish they had the capability to use different sized bits for hardwood drilling vs. softwood drilling, it comes equipped with a bit sized for hardwoods.

Another sized unit for a unique size screw. Will be adding more sizes as the need arises.

Not a true vix bit. Not adjustable.

I use the VIX Self Centering Drill to attach Blum Hinges to cabinets. These hinges require exact positioning and this tool make it easy to center the screws exactly. If you are using these type of hinges, you should have a set of these ViX Self Centering Drill Guides.

I have had several of these for years. They were old Craftsman products. One broke (that is a totally different story) so I got two new ones (different sizes) as a replacement. I was blown away by the difference in quality. These are far and above better than the one I broke.

The product was to be used to drill hinge holes in pine doors. I replaced the broken bit with one I purchased at Home Depot.

Mostly for installing door hinges but the bits are useful in other ways as well. All door hardware that require a flat head screw (striker plates, latches, handle escutchions, etc.) can be piloted with these bits.
