    I got the Mag drill on Friday and started making my jig. I ran out of energy, too much going on. I will hope post Monday. I'm going to copy your second design. Drill, slide the work piece, drop the pin in the hole just drilled. then flip and hope the holes line up.
    Thanks for all your help.

    Wouldn't a gang drill that can get several steps done at once be more appropriate here? Just looking at this from a man-hours POV.

    I completely forgot to follow up on this thread.
    Here is what I came up with. I got 24 drill bushings and found a machines to drill and tap them in some flat stock. They are spaced every two inches. I clamp the flat stock down and use a center punch to mark hole location. The I built a simple jig one for 3x2 rectangular tubing and another for 3x3 square. I got long 1/4 drill bits from McMaster-Car and drill thru both sides in one shot. Then I come back and use a 5/8 drill bite. It works perfectly. The magnetic drill is a big time savor.Name:  2.jpg

    Thanks man. My jig is a little tight, at some point I will do as you suggested drill a hole, move the material drop a pin in, and drill another hole, repeat. You folks are great
