Drilling in round objects
Just a little handy tip…
Ok, I was making a gift for our friend DIV, and I needed to make a hole in a 2 Euro cent, last time I did this, I was destroying the edge, because I held it with a wrench, and it spinned a little… Since this was a gift, it needed to be perfect, so I used the little extra time to make a jig.
First picture A 2 Euro cent, and a scrap piece of plywood.
Second: drill a hole, a little bigger than the coin.
Third: then one more smaller.
Fourth: here you see the holes.
Fifth: cut a spur in the plywood, don’t make it too short.
And number six use a clamp to add pressure, and drill.
Yes no rocket science, but an easy fast solution…
