When I was doing our porch rail I wanted to 'toenail' repeatedly and at the exact same angle only with screws. Hence I had to predrill a large number of holes and countersink same.

What I did was I simply got an angle bracket, bent it to the angle of attack I wanted to sink the screws in the wood, held it in place and slid the drill along the flat edge.

It worked like a charm.

Neat idea CG, wonder why I never thought of that, it makes perfect sense. Now added to my bag of tricks, I wonder how long I can remember it. LOL

Tetor, if I could learn 1/10 of what you have forgotten, my fixer upper would have long since been a palce .... Thanks for the compliment - Sometimes the simplest things work the best.
