Drill Jig for Round Bar, Tube and Pipe
David from Franklin, New Hampshire has been a long time metal crafter and now offers his through Round Bar, Tube & Pipe Drill Jig Plans.
Did you ever want to cross drill a hole right, smack, dab in the middle of a tube or pipe? I have lots of times. Finally, one snowy afternoon with not much else to do, I sat down and designed a jig to do just that. The next day I cut and formed the stock and built it. It came out so well, I put together this booklet so I could share it with others. You could probably make the whole thing in an afternoon if you’re an experienced home craftsman and if you have the right tools. It you’re a novice, this is an excellent project to learn with.
I've bought mail order plans since I was eleven or twelve. First from magazine advertisements and later from the WEB. Most of the early sets looked as though the guy drew them using a pen and yellow lined paper while he was waiting for the coffee pot to finish brewing. The later sets were mostly done using MSPaint® or some similar software and really weren't worth the cost of postage. I sincerely hope you will find my plans significantly better than what I described above.
