Hi
I`m trying to get a feel for what I could expect from a diy cnc regarding accuracy.

Hmm.....loaded question........
All depends on the components of the machine and how you use it.

Hi
Something like a hole location to another hole. How close to the print are the holes.

Only as accurate as your machine, tooling, setup, and applied experience.
Mach controller is more accurate than anything you will build.
Your machine may move the drill within , say .0001" center to center of the holes, but that dosen't mean you
will hold that tolerance in actual practice.
