East central Iowa
A drill stop is a device that you use mostly on a hand held drill to keep the drill from drilling deeper than a certain amount.
I've had a few different ones. Ones that had a collar with a screw that tightened against the drill bit flute. They didn't hold very good and the screw were too small to make good contact, especially on small bits. I had others that stripped out the threads.
Then I had some aluminum ones that were split and clamped the bit but these stripped out after a few uses or the aluminum galled from the steel Allen screw.
Finally I found these at Home Depot, they're steel, they have a steel Allen headed screw and they fit my Bosch and Milwaukee bits perfectly. They hold and tighten just fine. They cost me $19.26 shipped to my door.
I've no idea if anybody has a need for them but I haven't found these steel ones anywhere else.
