    need good tips

    Anyone have any quick and easy tip to keep slotted holes in line with each other when punching with ironworker? Without building a jig

    Thats what i ended up doing.. i only had 50 clips to make. I have a jig made but it wouldnt work for this particular job cause the slots were too close to the edge. I appreciate the suggestion

    If I don't need a jig, I use my eyeball.
