Imagine that I need to drill through boards that will be set horizontally and they will need to be attached to a post like below. For simplicity I will say that the boards will sit on top of each other and will be installed from bottom to top. This is a horizontal fence
The steep post has .20" diameter holes spaced 1" from each other As in the picture on the other side there is a piece of 2x2 that is already screwed to the post. The post will be sandwiched between the boards and the backer 2x2 (see the detailed picture, zoom in at the bottom of this post)
I think I need a jig that will consist of a piece of wood with three short #10 machine screws that will lock the jig into position, vertically and then predrilled holes in the jig, holes that I will use as guide for drilling new ones Yesterday I tried a similar approach but with screws ...their tip is very sharp and the jig (made slightly different) had errors and I ruined a couple of boards
Here are the specs and the instructions for this type of post
Any other I idea ?
