  • Attaching parts for match drilling.

    I need to drill some matching hole patterns in a washer like disk mounted on a post on the base part. Disk is steel base is cast iron. It would be a significant time saver if the disk could be attached during drilling then removed. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Not sure I understand. Sounds like glue would do the job.

      Um, If you need to match something to an existing set of holes, You can line the two peices up, clamp them to eachother, then use transfer punchs to punch a center punch mark, in the precise center of each hole (assuming throughholes), a set of 1/8" to 1/2" transfer punchs typicaly costs about $20

      Alternatively, if its a blind taped hole, threaded buttons with a point on the center can be threaded into the holes, you put the parts togethor and mallot them togethor to make the transfer.

        Stick the pieces together with CA glue (super glue). When you're finished, heat to about 250 or 300 or so degrees F and the glue will release. Then you can clean up with a wire wheel or some sandpaper.
