A picture would help...


Rubber band trick didn't work. I'll post a pic when I get back from work later tonight.

You'll thank me later. biggrin.gif
I just drove by one today haha biggrin.gif

I have one, but it's the one that you hammer. It doesn't do a good job, so I may just go and get what you linked. I'll drive by it on my way home from school tonight if their still open. I get out at 9. BUT, will it still work with a bit as big as the 13/16 is? Can't a tiny hole with a smaller drill bit in the middle work?

Can this be used as a pilot bit?

What exactly is this? Do I put this where I want the hole drilled and smack it down with a hammer?

Yeah, what I linked is just a center punch but it's spring loaded. Makes it a little easier to use where you don't have room for a hammer.
If you're still using the 13/16 bit you'll probably still want to drill a small pilot hole. So the center punch, spring loaded vs hammer type, is just a matter of preference.

I would also recommend a spring loaded spring punch if you are a metal working beginner. (With hammer, it is harder to get impact power correct. With spring loaded it is "fool proof". Not saying you are a fool, but if a beginner this is the best option. It will leave a little dimple on the sheet metal which your drill bit can be aligned with and - if you are careful - will follow.

Edit: ninja"d You can get a spring loaded hole pinch for cheap. I have for work. Works very well and is the size if a pen. The "kids" where I live use to use it for breaking into cars growing up...

Yes sir, once nice solid blow with a hammer. Then a pilot bit shouldn't walk around and ruin your nice powdercoat

Edit: never used one of these fancy spring loaded types biggrin.gif All my machines and equipment are circa 1930-40

Hey man, at least you have more than the basics. Cool stuff, thank you!
