Re: Drilling SS question.

Good job! The nice thing about transferring holes from one plate thru the next, is it helps retain the cutting fluids you're using.

That is quite the ramming device you have there.

Thats not true. Everything I did I read somewhere in this thread. I think it came down to my Friends professional quality cordless drill steady, pressure, cutting fluid and a sharp drill bit.
I was also careful to keep enough pressure on the bit to keep it cutting. All of these ideas I got from this thread. Its pretty funny how many replies we got from a fairly simple question but thats what is so great about this forum.
Thanks everyone for all the help and Del, you should see the anchor (Sarca No7) I will post a pic when its installed.
