    Maybe not?

    I haven't read this whole thread. I realize you want the most holes as possible but I've been thinking 200 .406" holes 1/2" deep out of a HSS drill is that so awful?

    You make a lot of good points and actually swayed me back to agreeing with you against it. The specific builder boards are a ghost town. Its hard to beat the input from the large body of folks on the...

    Like Rob mentioned the Z- is the final distance. I touch off the front of the insert then I typically thread up to a shoulder within .005" or .010" depending on the size of the thread. If it's just a...

    Hello Bill,

    I for one didn't understand why or how any calculation errors occurred or could even happen until now. That's crystal clear and makes perfect sense.

    35° diamonds or 55° diamond will usually get you up close. 60° triangle will work also. The key is not to center drill no deeper than necessary. The 35° is kinda flimsy so I'd only use it to finish....

    I'm with Bob, seems like a big PITA for a fire ring. I'd go down to the local farm store and get one of those galvanized rings they have that's used for livestock.

    The only rule I can see making as far as the taper out is concerned is do not use it when threading up to a shoulder. Thread about .005" or .010" shy of the shoulder with the withdrawal at 90deg.
