I make a pilot hole in a small piece of 2x4 with my drill press. Then I clamp that where I want it and I get a 90* hole every time.

Low tech baby.

What? No laser? No Gyro?

Troglodyte!

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did in his
sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

That drill is very cool!

I can just see it in a shadow box on my office wall.

Thank you, thank you and thank you :)

That thing's built like a tank. Makes the newer ones look cheesy.
