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.
This looks interesting
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.
It’s great, it would really occur to me, thanks for your trick!
