Stupid Human Tricks - Indexed Holes at the Drill Press


Recommended Posts

That looks very similar to my shelf hole marking jigs that I've used for 35 years or so.  They're just strips of plywood with holes drilled at points marked by dividers.  A 6 penny finish nail, with a centered point ground by a TIG electrode grinder is a tight fit in the holes drilled.  I use them for marking the holes, and drill them on a drill press by eye with only a fence and supports.  It's not the most efficient, but I only made one house full of cabinets a year, and it went fast enough to never bother with buying, or building anything "better".  I'll see if I can find a picture of them.
