Worked perfectly for installing 3 stainless steel hinges accurately on 2 garden gates. No binding, plumb and level because all the screws were properly aligned and centered. Hardwick's was great to deal with - will use again.

Thank you

Thank you for not being Amazon. The Vix bit for #14 screws is something I always wanted when I was a carpenter but could never justifiably afford. (A #12 will work more or less.) I bought it to accompany my Starrett combination square; to look, to cherish, and marvel at a product still made in the US. To purchase it from a family business is gravy on the hog!

  • This spring loaded self-centering drill bit is perfect for precise easy drilling in hardware. The bevelled tip on these Vix-Bits align in the countersunk hole of the hardware & provide an accurate & precise center-drilled hole for the corresponding screws. The drill depth is also adjustable to a specific depth, due to the set-screw on the side of the Vix-Bit. The drill bits will work in a number of materials including wood, metal, & plastics. These self-centering bits are a most handy tool especially when working with hardware!

    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.
