Thanks for the replies. Gave me the guts to attempt something new. As always, a great thrill to produce something in metal. I even followed the technique of making a boring tool by heating and bending as suggested here or on another forum.

Used 1/8" bit and heated it with Mapp gas, bent it with hammer on a bench vise horn, reheated and quenched in plain water,then ground to shape.

May not be the correct way but it lasted long enough to get the job done.

Thanx again.
