    No tricks.
    Measure everything 3 times, then once again to be sure. Mark locations carefully, and use a centerpunch (the automatic kind is best) to make a small indentation at the point to be drilled so that the bit does not wander.

    A good size nail with the point slightly blunted will suffice for a punch - easy on the budget too. Doesn't take a huge indentation, just enough for the tip of the drill bit to rest in so you can get a clean start.

    Of course if you can afford a VersaLaser it'll be a snap:)
    Saw one of those on TechTV, it's a printer with a laser mounted where the printhead would normally be -- I want one for Christmas
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    Grab some masking tape and cover the outside surface with it and then grab ya pencil and ruler and mark it all out first to ya satisfaction before goin' further (if ya make a mistake just apply more tape and start again). ;)

    I see you figured out my problem.

    I knew that, I just seen it in my garage last week.

    Thanks for the help.

    P.S. Checking out that versalaser thing, looks pretty darn cool.
