The "X-Y" Blue Rover (A Linear 2 Axis Jig for Bridge City's -DJ-1)

The "X-Y" Blue Rover (A Linear 2 Axis DJ-1 Jig) combines both the Festool Rail & Rail guide (from the 2200 Router set) with Bridge City Tools -DJ-1 to perform Drill Press precision operations on the X & Y axis of a large sheet of material (plywood, plexiglass, sheet metal, etc.) with both drill bits and forstner bits. By using the Festool Rail system with clamps (or the Parallel Guide set-not shown) one could measure and drill accurately parallel to the edge of a work or across a diagonal.
The "X-Y" Blue Rover (A Linear 2 Axis DJ-1 Jig) also has a optional plexiglass ruler guides that can be attached to it to assure reliable measurement & repeatable operations.

Photos and explanations can be seen over at the BCTW forum,
