For round sliders? Flat work also. The jig for
a flat slider is simply a waste board under it
to help minimize tear out as the drill bit cuts
through. And it will be cheaper.
Cut the V out the the jig at a 45 degree angle on
a table saw. Lay the slider piece in the jig and
use one edge to draw a straight line along the length.
make a mark 1/2 inch plus half the diameter of the bit
from each end and place back into the jig.
Turn the piece so the the line is on top and drill.
If you really want to get complicated you can add
more lenght to the jig and add a dowel to the jig
in the center of the V groove so that once you
drill the first hole you place that hole on the pin
to help align the round stock.
Drill the holes slightly bigger than the rope in a
block. Plan size to allow for at least 1/2 inch at the
end and 3 inches between holes.
This is one of those things that is easier to show
someone, than to explain in text...
