Re: Re: Re: Re: Drilling cabs

I use a Dremel on a drill stand. Put water in small bowl,enough to fully cover cab.Put a block of parfin wax in water to place cab on,hold with hand drill slowly about 1,500 rpm. when bit goes thru it goes into wax and doesn't damage bit. Raise and lower bit often to let hole clean out and cool. Also put about 10 drops of freon oil in drill water,will not make oil milky and increases drill life by 300%,learned this in Brazil. You can't use reg.oil. You can get freon oil at parts stores in pint cans,very cheap. I use 1mm bits from Daniel Lopeki.KOR Bobby B. PS If you want hole larger its best to drill 1mm first then go to the larger bit.Remember to have patience.
