Tip: Drilling A Straight Hole Without A Drill Press.

PISTOL DRILL TECHNIQUE

This is a "helpfull" technique for freehand drilling.

#1. Use an extra long bit. Any variance is exaggerated and easier to discern this way. It's easier to tell if it's straight.

#2. Drill vertically. This way you only have to concentrate on keeping the bit straight up and down.
