The bigger OD is no problem but, I just got lucky finding it. Only Klingspor had one of all the sellers I found.

Don, I couldn't find a brass one that size.

Electric drill, piece of dowel, and emery cloth, should enlarge the hole easily enough.

Thanks, Theo. That would have been the next thing to try if I hadn't found the bigger one. It's 1 1/32 ID. Just needed it to be big enough to spin a 3/4 bit safely. Not following a pattern so, OD isn't critical.

Not only can you NOT see what the bit is doing but the likelihood is that the dust will build up and cause lots of heat, not good for the bit! Two reasons why I design most of my templates to use a 40mm template guide. This shot illustrates what I mean.

Thanks, Harry. I'm just cutting bench dog holes. The reason for the template guide is to be able to use a template that assures accurate spacing.

Lee Valley used to sell a cheap French made brad point bit for drilling dog holes. The bit is about 7 inches long give or take. I drilled a hole with it through a short piece of 4 x 4 on my drill press. Then I just laid out the grid on the bench with tape and pencil and drilled free hand just enough to register the tip of the drill in the hole then I ran it through the 4 x 4 and drilled as deep as I could that way. That was maybe 3" deep with one more to go but with the hole that deep already the guide was no longer needed. Worked great and didn't take very long.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

A plunge router using a plunge bit makes the cleanest holes.
