    Winner! My son won his first BSA Pine Wood Derby!

    I bought this tool because my son’s car design used the whole length of the pine wood block, for the placement of the wheels. Very easy to use and adjust.

    SUPER USER TIP:
    This is not in the instructions (…but should be).

    Once you decide where to drill your holes, DRILL THE FIRST HOLE ONLY. As you will soon notice, this little tool is a bit finicky and will not stay in place. It won’t matter how tight you twist the screws. Trust me…that’s OK!

    Re-align the your recently drilled hole with the tool and INSERT A DERBY AXEL (one of the nails used to hold the wheels). Once firmly in place, drill the second hole on the other side.

    Tah-dah! Perfect holes… perfect alignment… every time!

    Used this to make perfect axle holes in the Pinewood Derby car. Alignment with the pre-cut axle slot on the car block was easy based on the product design and the detailed instructions that came with it. The drill bit was a nice bonus and perfectly sized, as the holes it made allowed for the axles to be inserted with moderate thumb force as opposed to using a hammer or some other driver.

    I would recommend this to serious car builders. The product was very high-quality and will probably last forever. Note – my son’s car did not win, but at least I am confident that axle alignment was not the culprit! I am a den leader and intend to use this as I help more of the boys with car construction next year and beyond.

    This jig makes it easy to get those axle holes drilled in just the right spot. Not sure if the guide holes will get reamed out after multiple uses from the drill bit flutes or not. Make sure you hold this securely or clamp into place before drilling. The supplied drill bit was the perfect size diameter and provided a snug fit for the axles. Get one and save yourself a lot of headache fretting about proper axle placement. This is a far superior method than using those awful axle slots precut on PWD kits.
