It may never work again, but using a Forstner bit, I was able to drill a 1/2 inch hole in a Rockler router table insert plate (1/4 inch aluminum).
Previously I had drilled a hole in the insert so I could make adjustments to my Bosch 1617 Router from above the table. Well, it was off a little. Today, I was able to drill another hole just off-center from the first which worked out perfect. First chance I get, I will test the bit. If it doesn’t work properly, I will have to replace it. I am just glad to have the access to the router. Previously, I could get my allen wrench into the adjustment socket at an angle but it was a struggle.
I used the slowest speed on my drill press to do the drilling.
