    cannot seem to find the one i seen a while back but someone made a nice little rig that slots into the linear rails so you can drill straight holes. me personally cannot drill for the life of me in a straight line so if anyone knows where i can get them from or are willing to make and sell me some would be great :)

    edit... found the video of someone using one

    I was just about to reply but if you have a solution you don't need me ;-)

    Give me dimensions to work to for the OD of the boss to fit in the rail and the drill size you want to use in it and I'll make you one in hardened Silver Steel if you're OK to pay postage?

    Good call if Nick is up for it.
    I made one a while back for tapping and actually tapped the thread into the guide rather than a tap clearance hole. That way the tap is held straight and winds itself into the hole to start the thread. Works both ways so up to you.
    Mine was aluminium as I had it to hand and only needed a few holes. Silver steel is a better option for longevity.
