For all us vertically challenged people( you couldn't drill a 90° hole if your life depended on it) I found an old craftsman drill guide in really rough shape(ok, ok it was thrown in a box and buried in storage) anyway, a good overnight soak in vinager removed most of the rust and loosened the spindle.cleaned up and oiled it has a new life! Seeing as I fulltime in a RV and storage is a premium(wife has too much stuff) this baby is perfect for tuning pegs. I found a place online for similar items(cheap) Click here or Google drill guides.

If you have a speed square(one of those triangle things with measurements), you can set one up against your drill to make sure your drilling a hole straight.

Now, why do they call that triangle a square anyway?  Because it helps you keep everything square.

Ok professor, at what point does an exit ramp become a entrance ramp? As soon as you pull onto it, half way or just before you pull onto the other road?

 Drilling and  driving.. there's yer problem.

PS..  I don't think of the glass being  half empty .. or half full........

 I just figure the  glass is twice the size it needs to be ;-)

I should have seen this coming! LOL Thanks for the insight Picker!

Exit ramp is always an exit ramp. If your entering it, it means your going the wrong way and need a kick in the arse. Hahaha

If your glass is half empty, use a smaller glass and quit your whining!

As soon as you pull "on to" an exit ramp, it becomes an on ramp, because you are going onto another road. Exiting the on ramp that you had just previously pulled onto exiting the road you had entered onto earlier.

The light at the end of the tunnel is just a glimpse into your future. LOL

Lol. Unless it's a freight train! Then it will be your past flashing before your eyes. Just saying

If you buy a self help book  ... What have you really done ?  ;-)  :-o

But seriously kids . don't drill and drive . 

There is an exit ramp that is an on ramp in KC Missouri. You can get off the highway. Stay on this very ramp. Circle completely around. And get back on the highway heading in the same direction you were traveling. About 100 feet back from where you exited the highway to begin with. So you could actually get back on this off ramp and complete this loop as many times as you want. 

Of course it helps to check 2 sides to make sure your straight and not leaning the other way too.
