Thanks, Jerry! It’s nice to know I’m not the only one in this position! I’ve seen drill press jigs that hold the part at 12 or 15 degrees and have a guide hole for the drill bit. I considered doing that, but it looks like a case panel in that jig would be so much in the way that I wouldn’t be able to operate the drill press. What do you think?

I appreciate the feedback on the pneumatic drill. I am leaning in that direction. A high-speed pneumatic drill should punch those holes in a big hurry.

I’m still in the planning phase now, but I’ll be sure to let you know when I get going building it.
