yeah, that rubberband trick is a good one. now if you danced your pants off I would have to look away, but family entertainment isn’t for everyone ;)

here’s a couple I use all the time:

1. hold a short block next to your drill bit to drill a vertical hole.

2. or drill a vertical hole in a block using a drill press then use that block as a jig to drill a straight hole.

By the wya, that third hand came up from a strange place. Be careful out there…

-- Better woodworking through old hand tools.
