      I broke my drill press and need someone to drill the brass plug out. I'll supply the right size drill bit & tap - all someone needs to do is drill & tap the hole, then return the bit, tap, & plug to me.

      I may offer this for members to use, with a PayPal deposit required - returnable when the kit is returned. I'd hold out S&H costs then refund the difference. Anyone think that sounds reasonable?

      Who wants to drill the hole for me?
