Do you choose Drill when you right click on Milling Stock? If so, which option do you choose in the hole wizard. This is where I was having trouble, getting the proper setup here.

Greetings fellow woodworkers and cribbage players. I make cribbage boards, lots of them. Every size and shape that you can imagine. When it comes to drilling holes, I like a solid carbide 1/8" end mill that has a 1/4" shank. I also use a MuscleChuck  at Burl's suggestion and really like it. The chuck makes it easy to change bits (throw the wrenches away) and keeps the bits straight, really straight.
Our pal Laney (I love that guy, my wife is getting jealous!) has come up with a terrific way to layout the cribbage holes and it will follow whatever arc or line you draw. If you want to know how, send me a message and I will respond.
Also, I get my metal pegs from Pete's Pegs. Try them, I think that you will like the quality and the price. www.petespegs.com
