I was tired of the old cheapo drawer pull jig I baught so I decided to make a new adjustable one from plexiglass. I almost always drill the holes by hand after the fronts are on and can never get the holes straight. With this jig they are always straight.

Drilled and threaded for the inserts. I can put different inserts in depending on size of drill bit I need. The current holes are 3”, 4” and 4 1/2” apart. I can drill and tap more if needed but these are the standard for which I use the most. Just line up the scribed lines and all is straight and square.

Thanks guys. Yes they are regular drill bushings from Leevalley. I have no intention of selling jigs. I just love making them, once only.
