BullseyeBore Core Raises over $200,000, 10-times its Kickstarter Goal within 48 Hours of Launch – the Ingenious Accessory Ensures Drill Holes are Always Straight



Save time and money by drilling right the first time, every time with BullseyeBore Core. The easy-to-use laser guided drill accessory that attaches in seconds works with common commercial drills & bits.

CHICAGO, Feb. 1, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — BullseyeBore Core has hit the bullseye with crowdfunding backers on Kickstarter. The ‘Core’ eclipsed its funding goal just 20 minutes after launch and has raised over $200,000 in pre-orders in the first 48-hours (over 10-times its goal) with an ingenious accessory that makes drilling straight easy.

My idea for BullseyeBore was born while implementing electronic instrumentation and measuring tools for constructing high-speed rail lines. Those tools used software and sensors which I realized could have other applications, especially in the construction and DIY fields

This instant success didn’t happen overnight. Led by software engineer John Cerwin it has taken 10 years of R&D and testing of 300 prototypes to create the perfect solution for drilling straight holes (perpendicular to the worksurface) every time.

“My idea for BullseyeBore was born while implementing electronic instrumentation and measuring tools for constructing high-speed rail lines. Those tools used software and sensors which I realized could have other applications, especially in the construction and DIY fields,” said John Cerwin, BullseyeBore Founder. “Utilizing that knowledge, I set out to make power tools easier and more precise. The ‘Core’ revolutionizes power drilling, making drilling straight, AKA perpendicular to the work surface, easier for everyone from the novice, to the DIY’er, to professionals.”

BullseyeBore Core connects to any common commercial electric power drill. It projects light patterns on the work surface to instantly indicate drill alignment or misalignment. It fits any standard drill bit up to 0.5″, operates in any orientation, and against flat or curved work surfaces. It’s also safe to use.

BullseyeBore Core can easily be used on walls, floors, ceilings, and worksurfaces at any angle. Traditionally drills offer built-in bubble levels for this purpose, but bubble levels only work if the worksurface is completely parallel to the plane of the earth. BullseyeBore Core does not have this limitation – it works in any orientation and doesn’t depend on gravity.

BullseyeBore Core Features:

Works with Common Commercial Power Drills: BullseyeBore Core is designed to work with thousands of common standard electric drills and drill chucks. It also attaches and detaches easily.Productivity: BullseyeBore Core becomes part of the drill and provides the ability to align a drill quickly and consistently. This leads to faster jobs and greater productivity.Safe to Use: If a foreign object mistakenly comes into contact with BullseyeBore Core during rotation, the connection between BullseyeBore Core and the drill chuck is immediately broken, and the Core’s rotation ceases (even if the drill bit is still spinning).Non-Contact: Unlike traditional drill guides, drill cups, or drill blocks, BullseyeBore Core does not need to contact the worksurface and thus will not scratch or mar it during normal operation. It also safely frees up your second hand and does not block or obstruct views of the drill bit or worksurface during a drilling operation.Patented Technology: The combined BullseyeBore drill alignment technologies are covered under several US and Foreign patents or patents pending.Additional Attributes: BullseyeBore Core is small, lightweight, powered off two inexpensive coin cell batteries, available in red or high visibility green, and in configurations for standard length or longer length drill bits.
