Anyone have experience with Famag Drill Guides (or drill rig as they call it) or their drill bits?

Famag to drill bits are top notch. Not familiar with drill guides though. Would expect the same high standards.

@Bob D.

FAMAG makes wonderful stuff. I have a few of their Bormax Forstner bits and really like them. In the US, Carbide processors carries the Forstner bits.

You may have to import the drill rig. Dieter Schmid Fine Tools would be a good place to start.

Interesting enough Peter Parfitt from New Brit Workshop posted a video on the Famag bits.
