    So there I was, drilling a 1 mm pilot hole by hand in a wooden pole........... go to remove the drill bit............... too much effort required..............BOOM!

    I stab the drill bit right through my left thumb :mad::mad::mad::mad::eek::eek: !!!

    I now have a lovely hole in my thumb 1mm diameter by about 1 inch deep..........:cry::cry::cry:

    Sorry, just had to get that off my chest :oops:

    I hate to be pedantic but it probably isn't a 1mm hole. Drill bits rarely bore/cut to their stated diameter. Probably just a tad oversize.:(

    I knew I could make you feel better;).


    My good deed for the day complete![​IMG]

    I might have been mistaken about the size of the drill bit...

    I think it was maybe half inch diameter! (it bl*&dy felt like it!)

    Drilling a length of timber, freestyle.

    Wood over leg for support, 10mm drill through wood into leg.

    Doesnt so much drill flesh as grab, twist and tear.....agony for weeks afterwards.

    I worked at a factory where the chap making pallets managed to nail his knees together with a nail gun. We never did work out how he managed it.

    Why didn't you ask on here ?

    We'd have advised you against it.

    25mm bit
