Award Winning Tools

MINI V-DrillGuide®

The patented MINI V-DrillGuide® is the fourth drill guide designed by Big Gator Tools. The MINI V-DrillGuide® is the smallest drill guide available. Big Gator Tools pushed the limits when designing this drill guide by finding the smallest hole possible to make. It took two years perfecting that small hole; the 3/64”. What seemed impossible became a reality in May 2016 when the MINI V-DrillGuide® was released.


There are 21 smooth holes to guide various drill bits; the most holes ever designed into the guides. These smooth holes, unlike drilled or reamed holes, allow less wear on your tools. Because the drill guide is made of the alloyed steel and is heat treated, these holes will not falter with multiple uses. Time and money will be saved by drilling a hole once with perfectly aligned holes on wood, plastic or metal surfaces. 100% American made and will last for generations to come; we back that idea by offering a Lifetime Warranty. 

Two Winners: Standard V-DrillGuide® - 1/8" - 3/8" & Standard V-TapGuide®

The Standard V-DrillGuide® - 1/8" - 3/8" was the first drill guide Big Gator Tools introduced into the market after the tap guide. We noticed a lack of precise, on-the-go tools and wanted to address the drill guide market. This portable Standard V-DrillGuide® has 6 common holes, plus 11 additional holes that allow people to drill perfectly straight holes in awkward locations without the hassle of a cumbersome drill press! Lifetime Warranty.  


Standard V-TapGuide® answers the call to accurately guide hand tapped threads on the inside of a hole to accept a machine screw or bolt. If you start every hole straight, it will help prevent tap breakage and increase the tap life. The tap guide has stood out in the industry for over 10 years due to the innovative 90° “V-groove” design that runs through the entire guide. The “V-groove” is found on the bottom of the tap guide and ensures perpendicular alignment on round and cornered material. All guides now feature the "V-groove". Lifetime Warranty.

Two Winners: Standard V-DrillGuide® - 1/8" - 3/8" & Standard V-TapGuide®

This was the first award for the Standard V-DrillGuide® - 1/8" - 3/8". The patented drill guide is made from alloyed steel that is heat-treated for durability, allowing a long-term tight tolerance for drilling. Time and money will be saved by drilling a hole once with perfectly aligned holes on wood, plastic or metal surfaces. Lifetime Warranty.  


This was also the first award for the Standard V-TapGuide®. The tap guide has 9 holes and can accommodate 32 different Standard Ground Tap Sizes. The tap guide accurately guides hand tapped threads on the inside of a hole. It can also be used to restore an internal thread that has been damaged or to cut a new, larger thread in the case of severe damage or stripping. Use on round parts, angled edges or flat surfaces. Lifetime Warranty.
