Is there a BEST way to drill a hole thru a cylinder that you have turned down. If you have a piece 8" long X 2" in dia and you want a quarter inch hole going completely thru it, is there a best way to accomplish a straight hole, end to end? My attempts were OK, but could be better. I know someone has a tip or two to share. Thanks
Hi all, I ask this question, because i am having a real hard time finding a drill bit or drill bit set with any quality other than bad. I have purchased 2 7mm drill bits over the last few years, and both were pretty much dull out of the package. can someone point me to a place that makes quality drill bits? I prefer Brad point, but it isn't absolutely required. Thanks
Had two wooden cones that hold fire hoses' brass handles brought to me to reproduce. One is about two feet long and the other one ft. Both have 5/16" holes drilled through middle for bolt-on. My floor standing drill press only has about 4-5" travel. It was a pain to drill, not knowing if the long bits would stay true. Fortunately, after about 1 1/2 hours, I completed the holes on one, and they were right-on! I glued short dowels in each end and turned them to fit the brass hose handles. It was quite a task, but was glad to provide assistance. The wood I used was mahogany, and they looked pretty good when finished. The fireman that is doing the restoration had to retire over a yr ago. He was pulled out of a fire, unconscious and paralyzed from the waist down. After 3 months, he was awakened from an induced coma to face mandatory retirement. Fortunately, he is still able to carry on his taxidermy business. How could I refuse to help him after learning his great sacrifice! Thanks, Billy!
