I agree with RT on this- Unless they have a pathway or pilot hole to follow, from my experience they go cockeyed. Also remember not to torque too much or you will strip out the pilot hole. Should this happen drill out the original hole and glue in a piece of dowel rod, use your Vix bit to center the pilot hole and it will be as good as new.
