I firmly believe in sharing whatever I have learned.

The angle is 45 degrees and the bit is a 60 degree sign making router bit that was easy to use in my drill press. I bought it from either Woodcraft or Rockler. I used clamps and stopblocks to get the centering and distance right and made a bunch. They work up to bolt action so Saturn/comfort/Roadster, Sierra and bolt action. I will make a wider version with a larger hole for steampunk soon. I will post it.

I sell them for $5 and they have sold ok.
I don't have anything to measure angles, but I measured the tip of a Sierra with my calipers and did the math. Unless I did something terribly wrong, it looks like the tip angle is about 15 degrees. I'm guessing the 60 degrees is a typo - it looks like the bit in the pic you posted is a 15 degree, which matches my math. I'm definitely going to try this, but gonna have to buy a bit first (sadly I don't have a CNC, and therefore don't have random spare CNC bits...).

Looks to be an MLCS bit number 5075 for $25 and free shipping.

I might try this with my kreg jig. It might just work also.

Sorry, I sell them for $10 not $5 written above. Others where I sell my pens are far better at convincing customers that the NEED a stand, God bless them.

Interesting, I just read this thread after the above discussion of boxes. Might be nice to drill a 45 degree hole in a wooden box lid and then you get two for one !
