I am working on my workbench, and I have come across a problem. I am planning on using those hex bolts that screw into a cylindrical threaded “nut” to hold horizontal stringers to the table legs. In order to do that, I have to be able to drill down into the end grain of the stringers for the bolt.
I have access to a floor-standing drill press, but I can’t see a reasonable way to orient the stringers vertically, on end, for this bore.
I began to wonder whether there is some kind of jig I could make to fix a hand electric drill in a horizontal position with a little fence along which I could feed the stringers to do this bore.
Any ideas or suggestions?
