Line boring

Any one got any ideas on how to get my drill press to do accurate line boring? The only thing i can think of is to install some kind of stop on a hinge that i can flip into the previous hole, drill, slide, drill... I've got 36 panels to do! Wondering if someone has figured out a better way.

Flip stop with a pin would prolly be the most accurate.

I have used pegboard templates with a cordless drill and depth collar without any issues.

I use a template and plunge router. With that many panels it would be easy to justify a purpose built jig.

What he said....

Some 1/4" pegboard and rip it to the width of your panels and then tape or mark the line of holes most suitable and "drill baby, drill" using hand drill with a depth stop, make one from a dowel or block of wood to suit. bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
