    I recall you mentioning that Tyrone (took a good portion of the day?). S’pect the mill driver was just wanting the rest of the day off??? (just kidding)

    On a plain jane twist drill the chisel point can amount to 30ish% of the total thrust load. Split & crankshaft grind drill points effectively “thin the web” by 50% or so and go easier.
