Re: Howto drill center of a rail.

No jig required. put a cutting disk in your grinder or Dremel tool and cut a tiny grove no wider than your drill bit. the bit will bite easily and stay on center. I've done hundreds of holes in ss tube like this and have never messed one up.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
