Here's one of my acrylic bits for G1/4 holes. If I remember correctly it is ground to a 60 degree angle.

This is going to sound insane to some of you... But you can drill good holes in acrylic with a regular bit in reverse. Back the acrylic with some wood to prevent flexing, and go slow. If you have lubricant, that will help a lot.

I don't learn, or gain any experience, when someone else does the work or uses tools I don't have or have access to.

When it comes to boring deep passages . . . . in acrylic . . .

The trick I have found, besides the experience of feeling when the bit is near to galling and pulling out in time, is to have a spray bottle of lubricant water to cool the bit frequently and lubricate the bore.

Nice work !
I couldn't find a good pic of a high speed twist drill modified to drill acrylic this was the best one I could find you must have either modified yours or have a speciality acrylic drill bit. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
maybe you could upload a pic of your drill bit
Just I know that is modifiying the drill rake angle is just about important as going slow and well lubricated and keeping the Acrylic cool.


To reliably get good holes in acrylic, and plastics in general, I have a set of specialized bits that by design, don't have the tendency to crack out the back as they come thru the hole.

The trade off, is that they also don't "pull themselves" into the hole as you drill, so they create higher frictional temps and need more force pushing them forward.

For blind holes, that do not need to go all the way thru the material, regular TiN coated drill bits for hard metals work fine.

I use that type of bit for holes that will be tapped for G1/4 and need a shallow bottom, or tapped for 6-32 or M4 for securing screws.

For very deep holes, I usually have to finish the deeper portion with an extra long length drill bit, these are usually available in High Speed Steel, (HSS) and as long as all you use them for is acrylic, they last pretty long, but because the flutes are only present for the first few inches, you have to peck drill with them to keep the flutes chip free and prevent galling.

When I made the pump module base, I used my drill press to drill the holes that were to be tapped to a depth of about 1/4" from the bottom of the block thickness.

Then I clamped the block to the drill press table, and using the same drill size as for the tapped holes, (11.4mm iirc) drilled in about an inch, then changed to a slightly smaller bit, (7/16") and continue the bore. As I get close to where the lateral bores meet the blind holes tapped for fittings, I change back to the 7/16" plastics bit for a smooth pass into the blind hole and then onto the other side, where I change back to the regular 7/16 bit. If the bore is deeper than the reach of the TiN coated bit, I switch to the HSS extended length 7/16 bit, and complete the bore with lots of water and air blasts to keep it as clear of chips as possible . . so they don't fuse and cause galling.

Drilling laterally with an extended bit into a blind hole just takes patience, and skill gained from experience, controlling the drill's speed and keeping it from breaking thru too quickly are the biggest challenges.

I use my 1/2", corded, variable speed Dewalt drill, to do my lateral bores.

Maintaining your drill trajectory on axis, up down / side to side just comes with experience.

These are "plastics" drills, with a regular bit on the far left:

looks good!its also good to see you bending pipes instead of cheating and just using fittings to create the bends! Well done!!
post #101146 of 107137



Just test fit the new blank lower door for my 900d.
Now just a few adjustments and Figure out what vent design to cut in it.
I'm thinking about four, 4 1/2" holes that line up the the fans, or......any ideas?

Cheating? Each to their own, but using elbow fittings is just as fantastic as hand bends. The way the tubing turns doesn't make the build, its the way the builders make it turn that's special.
