The replacement guide tip for the Vix-Bit drill bits. This tip is bevelled & will fit the corresponding countersunk holes in hinges & hardware for accurate & precise center-drilling. The guide tip is also hardened, making it very strong & durable.
From the Manufacturer:
Sam Vick, a carpenter & building contractor, was looking for an easier way to install hinges, window latches & hardware using screws. He invented a self-centering drill bit that ensured a perfectly centered hole every time. The Vix-Bit became so popular with fellow carpenters that he formed S.E. Vick Tool Company in 1958.
