19-Jan-2012 Having finished drilling all the small holes, and re-clamping the setup so I don't drill holes in the vise, I use my favorite quick and dirty method for drilling a large pilot hold beofore boring to size: a bi-metal hole saw. I drill on the slowest backgear speed, with cutting oil, and manually engage the downfeed to keep even pressure.
