    Also, for the record, .010-.012-.015 is about average for our small drilling. We do a few jobs with .005"x10dia. with only 10k rpm it's like watching paint dry...

    Marcus, we do have a hole popper, but it is an "extra step" that they don't want if possible. Again, we are managing, just wondering about something I may not know about. We do peck .001-.002"...
