Shelf hole drilling system as seen on New Yankee Workshop

Page 1 of 2  
Does anyone have a link for the hole drilling system used by Norm on NYW during a cabinet project.
It was an aluminium jig that uses plunge router and guide bushing.
Thanks in advance, Drew

I tracked the saw system to Festool, dunno if all the rest was the same. Neat stuff wasn't it?

This Festool system seems more complex then what I saw, simple aluminum jig and utilizes a guide bushing and plunge bit.

Neat

Just make one from 1/2 MDF - it will work fine.

Well thanks anyway.
It truly is amazing that no matter how specific a question or request, you always get this type of response.
Of course I could make one, but I want that system...so my request remains.
If someone has a direct link, please post the link for the described system.

remains.
system.
Maybe you could just build your own out of plywood.
Just kidding. This kind of post always results in those replies because a lot of people (mostly new woodworkers) see things like that on Nahm's show and think they need the system to drill holes. It's mostly people just trying to save someone some $ and headaches. The one that gets me is Norm's pocket hole machine.

I agree, and it was no big deal really, the way to do it is...
No, I do not have a link, if cost is an issue it could be made though...
But, I have no problem investing in a reasonalbly priced commercialy made jig system that will hold up to years of use and abuse, and personally I hate MDF, yes it has it's place, but weight & durability are a sacrifice I do not want to make.
"Norms pocket hole stuff"...now there you go...he has shown at least 2 commercial systems, I haven't caught him using the Kreg system, although he hocks it on his shop...blatent commercialism, oh well, it pays for the show...better than pay per view.
That huge wide belt sander, I could have one of those...if I kick out a wall after a divorce precipitated by even thinking about owning one.
Have a great day, Drew

IMHO, good commercial equipment pays for itself if it gets used on a regular basis.
Also have no use for MDF, especially in a boat yard.
Opted to build this jig using 13 ply Birch since I'll probably only need it a few times.
NYW needs to update their layout technique they suggest on the drawing since it introduces unnecessary errors.
Have fun.

I've built my own using Lee Valley Tools' hole guided and a piece of plywood. Cheap and efficient. Here's a link to how they work.

I have a drilling jig from Hettich, a german hardware company. You can view it on their website www.hettich.com
They offer several jigs and tools for the 32mm cabinet system. I bought mine through www.cshardware.com, a Wisconsin company specializing in hardware for cabinets. It may be worth calling them to see if you can buy from them.
I note, too, that Lee Valley has a veritas jig for 32mm holes.

Here's a good spot to start your search:
http://web2.hettich.com/hbh/startupHandler?Startup=Start&UserID=gast&Productgroup 62&DefaultLanguageD
Click on the link for drilling template. Once armed with the correct info, it's a matter of poking around til you find it.
Again, I bought mine from www.cshardware.com
Here's the link for Lee Valley:

Whichever one you select, it is important to use the correct size drill bit and to take your time drilling. Going too fast is a sure way to snap a bit. I know. I broke a bit at hole #7 the first time I used the template.

Drew,

I bought one from them a couple of years ago, but I am cheap and bought the plywood model. The aluminum one looks real nice but I couldn't see where another hundred or so could make that much difference.
Be sure to have them send you their bushing as well.

Well, this won't directly answer your question either, although it would have gotten you started in the right direction. I'm extremely disappointed that after whoring my website for some years now, on one mentioned my Norm's Tools section of my website. Anyway, look for it on the link below and get all of your Norm's Tools questions answered.

Sorry, but you will have to continue to do your own whoring. If it makes you feel better, I did think of your site but I was too lazy to look it up.

Oh, well. It was worth a shot.

It does. Thanks.

Geez, I tried to pick a name that wouldn't be easy to forget. Sorry it didn't take.

For spotting shelf support holes in cabinets, I used a piece of pegboard. Marked on the board how to line it up for any paticular situation. Then used a drill bit with a stop colar on it to make the holes.

I agree, too pricey even for a commercial product with so little manufacturing, I will make my own out of aluminum and holddowns identical to their OEM parts.
Forget the MDF solution though.
