This handy device is an aid in production drilling. A dial indicator is coupled through a fulcrum to a probe that contains a recess which locates the drill point. By using the Drill Depth Presetter when setting up the job, a drill may be "zeroed" at the bottom of the hole to be drilled. If the drill breaks or becomes dull, the bit can now be replaced and its depth of cut quickly set to within .001" of the original setting, eliminating the need to redo the setup. Recalibrating hole depth becomes a simple matter and valuable parts need no longer be sacrificed.
