Default How dangerous is it...

...to spin a 3/4" straight bit in a PC template guide with a 25/32" ID?

I figgered a 64th clearance was a bit tight. PC's bushing is steel and the walls look pretty thick. If I had a machinist cut a 32nd from the inside, do you think that would give enough clearance?

How well can you center the guide? Can you somehow have the bit protruding out of the guide so only the shaft is within it?
Out of curiosity what is the OD of the template guide?

Any wobble on start up or deflection in use and you are likely to make contact.

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.

I'm cutting 3/4" holes using a template with 1" holes. So, the OD of the guide bushing would be 1".

Found a 1 1/4 OD PC bushing that will work. Just need to make the template holes bigger.

I knew you would figure it out. That is what I was going to suggest.
