Kieth, I inherited this from my Dad. It will do the drilling, but if not respected could beat a guy up pretty good.

I have Chicom 1/2" shank S&D drills to 1". Most are in need of sharpening as I have not mastered the art of freehand grinding yet.

What shank does your mag drill use? Would you use a twist drill or a rotobroach?

I'd bet Gerry can sharpen some drills for you, if you have a decent bench grinder. Annular cutter is much quicker.

I was drilling some 3/4 holes (worn out and egg shaped)out to 1'' with a big drill and a 6 foot reaction bar/pipe.
I had a young (new) helper and he was holding the reaction bar,or so i thought.
The bit caught and the bar slipped out of the helps hands and here it comes,it whacked me but good right upside the head.

Man did that hurt,bent the drill bit all to shit and rang my chimes but good.
The kid walked away while i was yelling and he never came back..

Where are you guys hanging out at on Sat?
I'm over at the ice fields between Jasper and Banff.

I use a weldon shank, and have a chuck adapter.
But I would use a rotabroach. I will have to see if I have a sharp 3/4" but I am sure I have at least one.

We are going to be at Cam's place halfway between Red Deer and Calgary. If you are in the area we can get you there. Or come by my place and we can travel together. I'll be rolling about 3:30pm

what about a drill guide?
I have been making them for drilling out broken studs or making sure I drill a straight hole for heli-coils.

figure about 1-1/4" thick min, for a 3/4" drill bit.
for 14 holes I would make it out of steel.
