I always hang around tech talk to see what exciting things people have come up with, and often times I try to assist my fellow board members with intricate questions. This time, however, it is I who need some advice!
I am working on a custom stick of my own that will be a little bit different from the wooden ones that we see so much of these days. As my Sanwa parts should be here mid next week, I am closing in on the time to start drilling out my panel! I need to find out what you experts would recommend for the following:1. Which bits to use for drilling out the holes in quarter inch thick aluminum (research has shown me I should also get some lubricant, and that I should drill with smaller bits incrementally up to the full size.)
What technique is used to cut out small to medium square/rectangle holes
What technique is used to cut out small to medium square/rectangle depressions
As you might have guessed, I hadn’t done any drilling with metal before! I’ll be using a hand held drill for this project, if that helps. I searched the forums but all the drill bit conversations are based on woodworking. If I was blind in my search, feel free to call me out on it. Thanks in advance!
