I wish I was as smart as this guy. He shows three ideas but I am not fond of the third. What do you think?
I can not drill a straight hole. I have to have some kind of help. ""Mental"" :frown:Very interesting Don. The first one is a good one if you need vertical holes consistently. Usually a good approximation is enough. I drill a hole through a wooden block with my drill press and use that for a starter block when I need them that accurate. The second one I just don't do enough of to make it work going for the rollers. A solid wooden one is enough. The 3rd one isn't cost effective even if I just copied it and I'm not sure it wouldn't plug up with hardened finish which means you would have to take the lid off to unplug it most likely which would defeat the purpose. It's not frequent and short term exposure to air that is the problem in most cases, it's the sporadic openings over an extended time that ruins finishes.
