  • Driving small theta drills by hand

    At the end of a long weekend I found myself driving small diameter drill bits with pin vice _after_ starting center hole in tailstock, precision chuck. Was unable to progress to gauging... curious if this is 'acceptable practice' for reasonably concentric holes.

        How small is small? It's been my experience on any drill under a 65 is to run it very fast.
