Maybe turning the wrong way. Or in upside down. Lol

I once witnessed a guy ruin a new drill bit I had just given him.

I was outside the grain bin, heard him cussing and watched the side of the bin start glowing red and finally the bit popped through. He had pushed hard enough to get the 5/16 or 21/64 bit through the 10 ga. bottom ring in reverse.

He was never known to be the sharpest tool.

I don't have a way to do pictures. Mine is the old style with two small flats on the collets, and when the bit is locked into the collet, the heel of the flute ( the cutting edge is the front and follow the bevel back to the heel) should be centered on an imaginary line down through the middle of one of those flats.
