Thanks George. I've been TBC for a while, your article has shown me how to do some steps better.

Thanks again

I'll add another thanks in there. I'm about to start turning between centers, and this has helped give me some great pointers, not to mention great pictures showing me the correct steps.

Well George, I have been doing it a bit differently but I do believe I will now be "borrowing" a few things from that article and by doing so I think I'll eliminate a couple variables in my process. Thanks for taking the time to spell it out for me (I need that).

From the pic where you are drilling, it looks like you do the same little trick that I do, but I don't think you mentioned it George.
Before drilling, use the tube and make a mark on the drill bit. Then you know when to expect the drill to exit the other end and you can take that little bit more care.
Great tutorial BTW

Yep, I do mark my bits so I'll know when to slow down or ease up. When I get close to the end I will retract the bit and give it one last chip clearing. I just thought everyone else did too.

Doing a lot of drilling and tapping on blanks I have marks all over my drill bits. For example when I make a section for my nib feeds I drill all the way through with one size bit then to a depth of .990" with another bit then to a depth of .760" with yet another bit before tapping the threads. It helps to know when to stop drilling!
