If youre installing many nut plates, these things are well worth it. Just drill the pilot hole and then use the jig to drill the rivet holes. No futzing with clamps, drill bits walking and misaligned holes. The tool part is made from hard carbon or spring steel so the drill will not wallow out the holes.
