Default Homemade Main Line Drill

I had some free time this afternoon, and it was raining outside, so I put together a main line drill. I'll get some paint on it tomorrow. Larry (lpakiz) machined out the 5/8 bolt to accept the drill bit. Larry, it looks like you'll be getting the first one! Thanks for your help on this!

Looks good guy's, glad to see your using " real " vise grips, Are you still making tubing tools as well ? We have a section in the classifieds waiting for all of your maple tools.

Default Take a die grinder to the bottom of that drill bit..

Then resharpen. and grind a flat up on the shank for the set screw to lay into. Then you have a perfect tool.

I'd be interested in one without the paint if the price is right! Big name company charges around $100 for the same thing
