Trust me I appreciate all this thought you guys are giving....I guess this jig dose have a 27/64 hole and that is pretty close to dead nuts it’s the 1/4” hole that’s doing the walking...I’ll spend some more time with it and see if I can’t get her a little closer.... if I had a super cool drum sander like you guys that would definitely be the easiest way :goldtooth:

That jig pictured looks to me needs to have longer vise parts on each side. Any wiggle will be more out of the holding part I would think.

Once tight I have no wiggle at all on mine, I have had no problems with it, if I did I suppose I could shim a little and or add straight pieces to either side to make the vise clamps longer or to make up for a not so perfect block, various solutions, or just go back to Ed's place and get a refund or new one. My drill guides have no slop and are center'd so no bit walking, can't think of a better jig tool. Kopper I hope you get it figured out if not give Ed a call. Don't know who you bought it from if it was purchased from a second party maybe it was damaged some how :dunno:

How about if you used a forsnter drill bit?

Think that would help with side support on the inside wall of the jig hole?
