    Dots? Am I the only farsighted member? I need big circles.

    I also have a little makeup mirror sitting next to the saw to reflect light underneath do I can see the marks.

    Bill,

    Yes, I, too, use this method of marking the bottom of holes. But lately I have only been marking those very tiny holes; those drilled with the small numbered bits. I use at least two and sometimes three bit sizes when drilling the starter holes of my projects. I think that I save the time it takes me to change bits by being able to more quickly locate and insert through the larger drilled holes. However, on the very dark woods I find the marker colors I have don't help much. I do have a silver ink pen that I sign my dark turned bowls with, perhaps this might work for the holes on the dark scrolling woods. I may experiment with it sometime soon.

    Regards, Don from Eugene, OR

    Let your reach exceed your grasp.

    I come from the bottom when threading my blade and I have found that if I take a red sharpie and dot each entry hole before starting it makes locating and threading the blade just that much easier and faster for me. Of course the projects I use this method on are portraits and have the backs glued to a backer board when complete so any excess of the red is not seen.

    Any others use this method?
