Default Re: drilling through holes

Loose the 1/16 bit.. it's too small and will deflect giving you nothing but grief... 1/8 is the smallest you should go, 9/64 is perfect, 3/16 is not bad either..... use your lathe, it's 3 times faster and more accurate than using the drill press....... Drill at 1200-1400 RPM's use a slow advance and clear your chips....
