  • Drill bits

    I do a lot of stack cutting is there a drill bit that cuts down on spillting the back out ? Iuse spare wood to put on the bottom and that helps a lot but still have sum slitting . i use a lot o veneer in the middles of my stack cuting was just wondering if there is a bit that is better than most ?

    No real difference that Ive noticed. It does help to run your drillpress fast, and back out to clear chips partway through, and let it DRILL the hole, not punch it through. Go easy on the last little ways before it exits seems to help to, and the scrap under it helps the most. Dale

      I was really surprised with the difference on the bottom of the wood when I just increased the speed of the drill press. I also use a scrap piece of wood under the wood when drilling.

          I am using a small Micro Mark drill press at about 4500 Rpm for the small #72 - 1/16 drill bits. I didn't like running my big drill at high speed all the time.
          The exit holes are fairly clean but I still run the piece over my Sand flee to clean up the bottom before cutting.

              its a teeny tiny little bug with a very rough shell, that sands wood while it scurries around on the board. Here, see for yourself! Dale http://www.rjrstudios.com/

                He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

                Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

                It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
