    I am currently installing wall shelves using 40mm thick timber.
    In recent times I have always had a problem drilling holes straight in thick wood, they always go at an angle.
    Is there a jig somewhere whichenables holes to be drilled perfectly straight through timber so this is matched up on both sides?
    Do not want a pedestal for the drill as no room available.
    Thanks
