Actually, wheel wells are just an example. In this case, I’m trying to drill a hole into the top of a board one inch in from either end. But the problem is the same…how to set up a stop that measures the exact same distance from the right and the left side of the bit. Currently, I use a long, thin scrap, drill a hole at one end, and then cut it to the length where I want the stop positioned. That way I can set my stops at the same distance on the right and left side of the bit. The problem is that it’s not a very flexible solution since I have to cut a new one for every distance I work with. But thanks for the ideas!
