Re: [taigtools] Re: Using 10mm+ drills on micromill.
- I had occasion to dress the shank on a Silver and Deming bit recently.
The bit had a center hole on the shank end. I chucked up a scrap of
lumber, and bored it to fit closely on the business end of the drill bit.
I marked the location of the jaws, and carefully sawed a slit so I can
close it up like a collet using the chuck jaws.
Gripping the bit between the wooden collet and a dead center, I removed the
damage with a fresh carbide bit.
I suspect you could turn down the shank of your bit the same way.
