The idiagram below is of a simple drilling jig. This jig allows the user to drill holes onto a square section piece of wood.
The jig may be made from mild steel. The holes are accurately marked out and drilled along the centre of the top surface.
The wood is placed into the jig and clamped to the surface plate of the pillar drill.
Once again the pillar drill bit is passed through the jig and into the wood. The holes will be accurately placed along a centre line.
