A very small bench top press might be do-able in an apartment for making jigs and fixtures.

Haven't tried the Vix bits, but they look like a natural for piloting template holding screws into the waste areas (pickup rout area, contour area) of the blank.

Presses are mighty convenient, but the Jack Wells method for indexing the string through holes seems the only thing I can think of where the drill press is the best method*; That, and using a Forstner to hog out routings. Then again, I understand they have this marvelous device now called a chisel.....

idk, get a cheap neckplate and the accompanying Vix bit, and try it out on some scrap wood,

*Have an idea for a jig based on Jack Well's idea that should work for this, no drill press required, but the difference between should work and does work has to be measured with sawdust and woodchips so, and the weather the last month has kinda sqelched my desire to foray into Home Depot, so.....

My two most often used tools are my drill and my impact driver. They are useful for woodworking, but also for all kinds of home improvement and repairs around the house. Let’s look at the basics of drilling and driving, why I recommend owning both tools, and how to use a power drill and impact driver.

Power Drill Basics

Most of us are familiar with a drill. It holds a bit and you use it for drilling a hole. It has a chuck that tightens down jaws to hold a bit in place. Most drills today have a keyless chuck that you can tighten without needing a chuck key.

To use a keyless chuck, make sure the jaws are wide enough to hold the bit. To open them up, just unscrew the chuck and you’ll see jaws open.

Insert a bit. It doesn’t need to drop all the way in, just deep enough for the jaws to grab it. Then tighten the chuck by hand. I usually do this all in one motion by holding the bit and the chuck in my left hand and...

So much easier for driving fasteners than my DeWalt 18v drill/driver that it is astonishing. It is also much, much lighter and handier than my 18-volt drill.

4" deck screws, no pilot hole, full depth into treated lumber like butter. I prefer the star drive screws (T-20, T-25), but phillips-head screws go right in as well. So fast and easy it made me look at the relatively diminutive tool in my hand and giggle.

No kick-back or torque goes back up through your hand, wrist or arm. I deal with chronic, on-again, off-again tendinitis in my dominant right hand and wrist. This tool nearly eliminates the stress on my tendons and joints while driving fasteners. I can work much longer and more efficiently allowing this tool to do the work. No "leaning in", pushing, or bracing the tool with both hands necessary.

I love this...
