    Default Where to Get Split Depth Collars

    Hi Folks,

    I've just finished a small project that involved a lot of dowelling. I used Haron drill bit depth stops and found them to be useless as I couldn't get them to tighten without twisting - IMHO, a very poor design.

    I'd like to get some Split Depth Collars like these Split Depth Collars for Drills - Lee Valley Tools

    Anyone know where to get these or something like them?

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Robot Check

    At first look it seems as though they ship to Aus.

    Get some big sized piece of dowell or similar, cut to length and drill a hole through it then put it on the drill bit. Tape around the drill bit works as well but is obviously not a positive stop
