    A very good simple and practical way to drilling straight. I'm ordering some acrylic mirrors from Amazon to have next time I need to do this. Thanks for posting this tip.

    Great tip. I have an old CD which I use. It has a mirrored surface on one side. It is easy to keep track of and also works for holes on vertical surfaces.
