Hi guys!

Here is my DIY 90 degree Drill Jig. Also, I will show how to drill a perpendicular hole using a CD disk (a CD life hack). All comments are welcomed!

The is the video of the process and the jig’s capabilities (2 min.): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7UhOHgKRis

Nice video, really like the CD trick for drilling perpendicular holes, slick! I’ve seen that before using mirrors, but this is much more efficient & safe. Thanks

Thanks!
I picked that CD trick from some old magazine years ago. Can’t even remember which one…

Hello Michael

CDs are also good for using with Dado stacks but not the AC DC ones !!

Also where is the utube video of your simple jig for cuting mortices? you mention it in your introduction video but I cannot find i anywhere !!

Hi, Rob
Thanks for another good CD tip! :))
It was a bootleg AC/DC disc from Russia , so I didn’t feel so bad sacrificing it in that silly video response to John Heisz’s video “Can paper cut wood” ...:)
That mortise cutting jig can be found here on my Russian channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nd_-VIhjopY
I am planning to remix it for my English channel soon:

Right never use ACDC CD’s, they would never line up they move to much

Great solution
