I need to dill (and tap) a couple of holes in a a .125" X .75" x X" piece of steel and I'm having difficulty 'nailing it.'

So I thought to ask here to see if there was a trick, approach, tool I needed to learn or purchase to help me assure my two holes were in the right places.

Anyone?

Thanks for reading.

Scribe a line parallel to one edge, then turn the piece around and scribe a line parallel to that edge. Repeat as needed until both lines are one.
