Drill Stops

We have all experienced the need for one - at one time or another.
So what do you do to make a drill stop?
Let me guess ... wrapping good old fashioned painters tape around the drill bit has never let me down.

Well there are other alternatives, let us look at a couple of other quick solutions that will produce repeatable results when hand drilling.

Udie there is always the drill stop on most drill presses if one is to do a lot of scroll work on the same thickness of wood but I have also used the Electrical Tape.

   I have just gotten my first Drill Stop Set thanks to a great friend, and will have to say they are fun and easy to use.
I have always used tape before, and the Drill Stops make it neater and cleaner to use.
   Thanks to my friend I have a new toy that really helps in my shop.
