Award Winner - 2018

Latest: Metric V-DrillGuide® (10-14mm)

 

Big Gator Tools received an award for the Metric V-DrillGuide (10-14mm).  A panel of judges made up of tool and media professionals from across  the United States and Canada weighed in on entries from top global manufacturers.


Here’s what the judges had to say about Big Gator Tools – Metric V-DrillGuide (10-14mm): Big  Gator Tools takes their Pro Tool Innovation Award-winning design to  another level with an expansion into metric sizes. The guide plus a  clamp or two set up perfect holes without a drill press, even on corners  and round workpieces. They back their build quality with a lifetime  warranty and it’s a Made in the USA product. At $30, it’s a lot cheaper  than a drill press and a heck of a lot more portable.

 

Hundreds of power tools, hand tools, fasteners, and accessories were  judged, and winners were decided based on industry innovation. Winners  demonstrated achievement in any combination of the following: innovative  features, advanced power delivery, groundbreaking ergonomics,  technological advancements, and value. The Pro Tool Innovation Awards recognize best-in-class products that are truly ahead of their time. This year, over 60 different tool manufacturers submitted nearly  300 tool entries in dozens of categories for a shot to win a 2018 Pro  Tool Innovation Award.


“Manufacturers are consistently improving their tools.  Each year, however, some exceed the norms and develop products which  truly deserve recognition. Business owners, builders, contractors, and  tradespeople really need to understand which products can help them work  smarter and more efficiently,” said Clint DeBoer, Executive Director of  the Pro Tool Innovation Awards. “Often, they can also save a lot of  money in either material costs or time-savings. That innovation goes  straight into their pocketbook.”

Award Winner - 2016

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.

Award Winning Tools

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.
