I use a 4 to 12 step drill with 2mm steps. The 6-8 step does bushings perfectly.
The 8-10 step is a fraction short to do bolt together sealed tuners but a few seconds following with the 10mm drill bit fixes that. One of these days I will get round to knocking the 12step back with a grinder to fix that.

A tip I got from cigarbox nation to make sure tuners etc are aligned is to use a stick. Press it up against your edges and voila.

I prefer to just buy the tool actually made for this specific job-
The ruler is a good trick for getting them aligned, however I wanted to talk more about the topic of thinking about the whole headstock and what is best for different jobs.
