I need an ejector punch for a swage die that needs to be .157" diameter. A #22 drill bit is the right size but I do not want to use the only one I have.
Any suggestions?

Buy another drill? Or buy a piece of number-size drill rod. I think www.mscdirect.com carries it, as may www.mcmaster.com or www.travers.com

I think you can buy individual drill blanks from MSC.

Thanks, MSC had a 36'' length of drill rod for the same price as the 3 1/8" pieces, who would have thought that! LOL
