    Omg what a k h

    Just sussed out Iíve been such a k head lol

    Had another blow out on some African wood this morning with a brand new drill bit in my dp.

    Iíve worked with modding metal parts on cars and bikes for years and always had the slow and steady (spray with water keep it cool) way of working.....

    So after blowing out the wood and have had a couple of acrylics too googled speeds....

    So changing the belts about Iíve changed from 500rpm to 1000rpm....

    And flown threw 2 woods and some acrylics clean and smooth .

    So yes Iím sure a few of you will be chuckling, and negative replies always welcome so I learn.

    And Iím always first to call myself names

    Currently using a Charnwood W815 Lathe

    I have set my drill press on about mid speed as it is a real bugger to change the belts.
    Blanks I mostly drill on the lathe, slower on acrylic, resin, a bit faster on wood, if I think it might split or shatter I use a centre or spotting drill to start the hole.
