Re: [BKARTS] Posta nd such



Neil,
I suppose it depends a bit on the type of paper you're drilling through how effective this is, but you can clamp your paper tightly between 2 wooden boards (1/4" thick or so) and drill through slowly with a Forstner bit.

Thanks for the great list.

I'm new to this fascinating world and need to use posts and other fasteners. I have a simple hand drill that goes up to 5mm, but what would one do to drill a ¼" hold through paper and such without buying a paper drill. Any suggestions? Hope this is clear and thanks. Neil
