Im sick of runnign back to crappy tire last min to finish a hole.

also back in the old skool days i was told a recipe for home made coolant. but i cant for the life of me remember what it was. Anyone have any for when you run out of wd40 and the stores are closed??
where are you located ??

I have lots of Nachi and Morse drills and have great luck with them. The correct feeds, speeds, and coolant, as well as being able to sharpen a twist drill correctly will make your life easier! I have a chart that we made that lists twist drill feeds and speeds for HR/CR, 4130/4140, A2/D2, and 4150. Now most of that steel is tool steel and if your using a belt driven drill press you won't be able to get the speeds dead on but there is a method to the formula madness. I use a coolant that mixes with water and I always have a large and small bottle of tap magic on hand. I buy most of my stuff from one of the several local tool houses.
