hello Brian
I´m sorry that you cracked the piece
but may I give you a little advise (if you will take it from one who had cut toooo many corners)
when you drill thrugh a piece of wood with bracebits ,holesaws and the small plugbits
there is a centerpoint that comes trugh first , just let that center be shown with a fraktion
of a millimeter and then turn the wood around and drill from the other side thrugh the hole
the center had made
that will prevent both small and big nasty tearouts and leave a clear cut on both sides

take care
Dennis

you are welcome Brian
I can see that I forgot to mention
that nomatter from witch side you drill
then put less strength on the drill near the end of the cut
that to avoid cracks in the hole

best thoughts
Dennis
