Set the wood down where you need to drill. Lay the drill along the angle and use the wood to guide the drill while pushing into the wood to cut it.
How to Angle Drill:
- Use a speed square to gauge your angle for quick drill jobs: Set the square right next to the whole that you are drilling. Line it up to the drill so that the top is alongside the flat of the speed square. Line up the angle markings on the hypotenuse with the center line down the top of the drill, drill ito the wood at that angle.
- Cut a guide from scrap wood to keep the same angle for several holes: Set the guide you cut out on the wood that you want to Angle Drill and cut along the perfectly.
- Start with pilot holes to create angled pocket holes: Another option is to drill right into the wood to create smaal pilot holes.Only go in 5 inches and pull the drill out.
