I do not have a drill press and needed to gouge out some mortises at a 15 degree angle.
The drill needs to be able to enter and exit without any wobble and parallel to the jig. The frame fits the drill snug.
I had to put a screw in the back of the drill to make it parallel (Checked for wires/elec but not recommended unless you live in the jungle and have no choice) and drilled the opening in the bottom of the jig with the same size paddle bit as the one I would use to make the mortise. When drilling there was no wobble. The drill bit was a little undersized and I finished up the mortise with hand chisels.
