    Maybe get a price to have it done if you're that fussy.

    In wood working you can get a shelf pen guide that is a piece with holes spaced evenly along the length. They use a bit with a spring loaded collar that keeps the bit centered on the guide. They are usually with a drill bit that might not work with steel as it's designed for wood or laminate. Something along that line should work. Rockler carries them as do most wood working mail order places..

    If you're gonna make a jig to drill through, you need to use drill bushings. https://www.carrlane.com/en-us/produ...l-jig-bushings I made some drill and reamer jigs yesterday that used these.

    Here's a cross slide table. https://www.amazon.com/Grizzly-G8750.../dp/B0000DCZAH
