Derek, if the blank is made accurately like John has done, then the four pieces of aluminium form a funnel that keeps the drill centered as the drill contacts all 4 at the same time.
I see, thank you. Going to try that. Should be fun. I've done similar in wood, but thought that a decent thickness of aluminium might be a problem.
