    Don't know the pricing, but looks interesting. I wonder how much down feed pressure is required. The form doesn't look all that complicated to figure and work out, so if you found a material (broken carbide endmills perhaps?) you could probably roll your own.

      Yup, I've got one. My drill press was underpowered for the thing. I then spent buckets of time and cash on drill press conversion to VFD, then forgot all about the flowdrill. What I did get for results was very promising, though. I even contacted the manufacturer about getting taps, etc, but I got the brush off for being too small to deal with. It's been sitting on the shelf since.

        They are fantastic, produce a tap-able hole in sheet in secs, far better than nutserts

        I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure , but I'm not a complete idiot - some bits are still missing

          What size holes were you doing in what material?I have an application were 1/2 npt in 1-1/2" sch 40 pipe is what I need.

          I hate calling mfgs on this type of stuff.Seems like I get pestered for weeks afterward to buy something.
