Different Tusks for different tasks

Tusk offers three ranges of drills made from different grades of high-speed steel. Tusks metal drill bits are made from M2 high-speed steel with a titanium nitride (TiN) coating. The 135-degree point offers faster drilling, lower feed pressure and they have a split point or self-centering tip.

The 135-degree point offers faster drilling, lower feed pressure and they have a split point or self-centering tip. The top of the range Tusk Cobalt HSS Metal drill bits are constructed of M42 high-speed steel with 8% cobalt for hard material like stainless steel.
They have five times more life than regular TIN coated HSS drills. In between are the Tusk Cobalt bits (M35 high-speed steel with 5% cobalt). They have a ‘bullet point’ tip designed to start on flat or curved stainless steel without ‘walking’, and offer three times more life than regular TiN coated HSS drills. 
All drills are available in 1mm – 13mm dia. Call 414 5678 for stockists or see http://www.tusktools.co.nz/

How to fix that wavering drill

First we checked to make sure that the there was in fact some play in the quill and indeed the dial gauge showed run-out of over 0.5 mm, quite a significant amount of wobble. I felt vindicated and quietly pleased that I hadn’t dragged Russell away from oiling and balancing the wheels of industry on false pretences.

Sharpen up your drills

Back when I was sharpening drills as part of my punishment, I discovered there were slow spiral and straight-fluted drills for brass and plastic. You may need a straight-fluted drill. You can create this by “backing off” the first 3 or 4 mm of a spiral-fluted drill.
