V-Block Drill Press Centering Fixture


Drill through the center of round stock without measuring or clamping

This is a great solution to a vexing problem – drilling round stock exactly in the middle using a drill-press. The round stock fits snugly in the V-shaped channel so there’s no need to clamp it down. I’m sure there are other solutions like this, but this is the only one I have used.

Center the V-Block by lowering your drill (with the power off), then clamp the V-block off and you are ready to drill.
