2019 – Big Gator Tools Wins Industry Award

Metric V-DrillGuide® (10-14mm) 2019 PTEN Innovation Awards Award Winner

The 20th annual PTEN Innovation Awards have been decided, and Big Gator Tools is among the winners. Tool and accessory winners were recognized by the most innovative products introduced last year to the automotive aftermarket. These are best-in-class products that are truly ahead of their time.

“This new Metric drill guide has 9 holes, and is the largest Metric version available,” said Bruce Rooney, Owner of Big Gator Tools and designer of the Metric V-DrillGuide® (10-14mm). “This drill guide solves the biggest challenges portable drilling users face – drilling straight every time.”

A panel of judges consisting of technicians and shop owners, weighed in on entries from top global manufacturers, and Big Gator Tools received an award for the Metric V-DrillGuide® (10-14mm) in the Hand Tool category. This year, PTEN magazine received a total of 148 product nominations. Big Gator Tools was one of the top products in 31 categories to have been recognized.

Metric V-DrillGuide® – (10-14mm)
Item #: MDG2000NP

About the Metric Drill Bit Guide: This drilling accessory allows users to have the precision of a drill press for the fraction of the price without losing the accuracy. This drill bit guide is the 5th drill guide by Big Gator Tools and the 2nd metric versions. This marks the 9th tool designed and patented by Big Gator Tools. Manufacture Part Number: MDG2000NP.

The portable Metric V-DrillGuide® (10-14mm) is easy to use: hold the drill guide on the material, clamp and drill. It can be used on various surfaces. The Metric V-DrillGuide® (10-14mm) has 9 holes that will not be worn-out because of the rigorous heat-treatment process we use for the steel tool. These holes are smooth, unlike drilled or reamed holes. The hole sizes and hole alignment marks are permanently embedded onto the guide. The holes sizes: 10, 10.5, 11, 11.5, 12, 12.5, 13, 13.5, 14mm.

All of our various V-DrillGuides stand out in the industry and are considered innovative due to the 90° “V-groove” design that runs through the entire guide. The “V-groove” is found on the bottom of the guides that allow users to drill on round or cornered material. The bottom also features a flat base to allow users to work on flat surfaces. All V-DrillGuides carry a lifetime warranty and are 100% USA made. Time and money will be saved by drilling a hole once with perfectly aligned holes on wood, plastic, metal or other surfaces.

Other Sizes Include:

  • Standard V-DrillGuide® (3/8” – 1/2”) Item #: STD2000DGNP
  • Standard V-DrillGuide® (1/8” – 3/8” Item #: STD1000DGNP

Big Gator Tools Wins a 2018 Pro Tool Innovation Award

Judging for the 2018 Pro Tool Innovation Awards completed this week and 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.”
