Wow that is a cute tool now if only I could have used something like that when securing the ten inch I beams in the center of the road drain last year to make my threads straight.

I use astroglide after a bottle tequila to tap holes.

You guys are making it look like work.

Just so ya know. That part was cut out by another shop with a water jet.
All I did was hand tap the holes.

Replacing the bearings with better quality ones will make it drill holes like Johnny Holmes

This morning I had TPryder and Zombie66 in the same room and things got a little frisky.

Zombie had a broken screw in a mag base that needed a cheap remedy. So, I did what I do best, TAPPED THAT HOLE.

Yes, I could have counter sunk that hole but, the head is there to keep the mag from sliding out the base.

Did you power tap that like a big boy? Thats a big step in a few days time. Especially a small (I assume) blind hole. Nice!
