A long time Instructables lurker.. now pleased to be an Instructables worker,...as in; doing instead of doodling. This is easier now that I am 'semi' retired with more time to do stuff. My grandson is becoming a real inspiration for many projects that I hope to submit as I overcome my, paralysis by analysis. If you like what I share then please DO VOTE, it will be very much appreciated.

    Enhanced DeWalt Drill Before And After

    Yes... it is often useful to be sure that your hole will be perpendicular to the surface. I find that my little bubbles do help a lot but I have also used the method whereby you drill a clearance hole in a piece of scrap wood on the drill press, and then use it as a portable guide. Another method is to cut a 90 degree corner into a thick piece of wood and use that to align your drill. If you cannot cut at 90 degrees then two squared pieces of wood offset to create a corner can be used. If all this fails than you could splash out for the Wolfcraft drill guide which is often available on ebay for around £15 and is regularly on Amazon at twice that. Here is the link to the UK listing :https://www.amazon.co.uk/Wolfcraft-4522-Mobil-Drill-Stand/dp/B0001P19PO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1...see more »Yes... it is often useful to be sure that your hole will be perpendicular to the surface.

    Enhanced DeWalt Drill Before And After

    Hi and thanks for your comment.I have noted your concerns but I am happy to report that, despite extensive use and prolonged charging periods, I have not had even the slightest heating issue.Since I have a dozen or so of the little beasties I have also used them for other similar requirements, again with not adverse effects.I shall certainly seek out the other connectors that you mention and consider using them in future. Cheers.
