Just a note that may help...

Guest Posted February 13, 2009
Just a note that may help some one using the Chinese checker drilling jig.I secure the jig in place with two domed faucet washers( outside dia that fits snug in the template hole) and two 6 X 1/2 wood screws. Drill all the holes except those holding the template in place. Remove the two screws and washers and drill the last two holes.Made checker boards for my Greatgrans (10) and not onehole misdrilled. So it works great.

Fast and easy way to layout...

Fast and easy way to layout and drill the large amount of holes needed for the Chinese Checker boards. Saved me a lot of time.

The template works well. I used...

James D from Marshall, MO Posted January 4, 2011
The template works well. I used the self centering bit in a drill press and had no problems with it staying in place with wide masking tape. That allows free movement on the drill-press table. It would be nice if they made the board layout larger and if they offered a carbide cutter for the drill bit. I made 14 Chinese checker boards for Christmas gifts and had to regrind the cutting edge and sharpen it at least six times. I don't recommend the marble storage router bit...it either burned the wood from moving too slow or caught the sawdust on fire if I went faster...I ended up not using it.
