Now I can drill bunch of 90deg holes.. but why?

Thank you,

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Materials:

1.Use your old corded drill or buy the cheapest one:

Example HF coupon for 12$ Drill: coupon

2. hose clamp

3. Scrap wood

4. Wood Screws

Tools

1.Table Saw (Can be done with a any saw, but have to changed little bit).

2. Drill.

3.Safety Glasses.

Step 2: Aseembly

Create a slide by sandwiching wood pieces together.

Use paper as a shims between the wood.

Wax the sliding surfaces.

Step 3: Assebbly

Secure the drill into the sliding carriage.

Take a square and make sure that the drill bit is 90deg to the surface. Use wedges if needed.

Add Handle and a spring to allow better pushing and returning.

    Thank you,

    The reals instructions are:

    You need to take a look at your drill..make a holder for it.

    You need to buy/make sliding mechanism.

    Attach them together :)

    Its pretty easy to make.. hard part is to alight it and also make it stable.
