    A must have for deep holes

    Comments On Sep 24, 2015:I have the shorter extender and have used this for drilling holes for flower vase projects. It is very durable and easy to use. Have a set of hex keys on hand. I have a mini lathe (18" bed) and would be hard to use any longer extender. Perfect for my uses or for shorter pepper mills.

    Works!

    Comments On Oct 19, 2014:Solid and heavy, gets the job done. I used it with cheap Forster bits to drill out pepper mills. The screws hold the bit in place tight.

    bits

    Comments On Sep 26, 2014:The drill bit extender is an excellent tool, and necessary for getting deep in many works. Sturdy, and easy to use. It should come withg a caution however, that the shank will bend if your piece is not secure before drilling.

    A must have accessory!

    Comments On Sep 06, 2014:As mentioned in the product description these are an excellent way to drill the long holes in a peppermill. They extend the reach of any 3/8" shank drill bit. I have found many ways to use this accessory!

    Forstner bit extender

    Comments On Jul 06, 2014:It just does what they say it does. I recommend drilling as far as you can without it before adding this. I get better results that way.

    Nice addition for drilling to depth.

    Comments On Mar 05, 2014:Works fine. Only wish it could be used in holes smaller than 3/4".

    Well built, works great

    Comments On Nov 11, 2013:I use this for boring deep holes with Forstner bits in vases and other projects. The two set screws hold the bit very securely, and the machining on the extension itself is very good, allowing the bit to run straight and true. Highly recommended.

    Solid satisfaction

    Comments On Sep 27, 2013:I bought the 6" extender and used it on both the lathe and the drill press; stellar performance in each case. Solid, strong, and steady. I'm 100% happy with this product.
