Drilling Holes for Top Operating Detail

Christopher Zurek
 

Hello all,

I'm to the point where I need to drill holes in the tops of some couplers for the top operating detail. I need to do some Type E, Type F and Type H for locomotives.

I've done a few Type E by hand and that kind of sucks.

Anyone have some suggestion on how I can drill the holes easier than by hand? And exactly where the holes should be?

I do have a Seig X2 mini mill and drill machine, so I'm thinking I should just be able to put the couplers in a small vise somehow.
