def recommend this way not all drill bits are the exact size for the pass through because of tolerance issues and need to be a little bigger sometimes

So quick question again. I'll soon be marking where to drill my passthroughs. I still need a drill but that's big enough for the holes. My Bitspower passthroughs (the silver versions) are exactly one inch in diameter. But the actual part that goes into the hole is 3/4 inches. Is this the type of drill bit I can use?



I remember a few others posting the sizes and everything, as well as linking me to shank step drill bit, but I'm not going to pay $30 plus for a drill bit.

mark the exact point where you will drill with painters tape and a pen. Then use a small drill to make a pilot hole (just a small 1-3 mm hole). Then select the dril you will use (a 20 mm drill for bitspower pass through or the closest in inches - your pic is not that clear but 3/4 is 19 mm so not sure that would be enough...)

I suppose for imperial that would be a 25/32 or a 51/64 bit

Here's a pic of the pass throughs.



The top part is about 1inch, and the bottom is roughly 3/4inches. Is a 3/4 step bit what I should be using?

3/4" diameter is not enough. At least it's not enough for Bitspower pass-thrus.

I got a step bit that has 13/16" and it is just very slightly bigger than the pass-thru.

3/4 inch is slightly smaller than 20 mm so you would want to get a step bit that is a little bigger i use one that goes up to 7/8 but drill a little past 3/4 because 3/4 is slightly smaller than the 20mm hole you need

^^this Steezy. Already pointed out that 3/4 is note enough been 19 mm (the bitspower pass though is 20mm). 13/16 or for a close fit 25/32 or 51/64 bit.




as you can see it is a m20 which means ~20 mm (between 19.96 or 19.98 mm depending on the thread)

So 13/16" is what I need? Math isn't my subject, so all I see is numbers haha.

Okay, I understand. I didn't know 20mm was the hole size. So 13/16 is the bit I need?

I can only tell you that I used 13/16. The fitting goes in the hole with just a little clearance all around. As Gabrielzm said, you can go to 25/32 or 51/64 if you want closer tolerances.

Since you said math is not your thing, 13/16 is 26/32 or 52/64.
