    Got a box full, they don't drill crap from new. Maybe you young squirts don't know how a bit is supposed to cut?:p

    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.

    Friction drilling. Could be onto something there. Lol

    You need to make sure that the heel of the flute is aligned with the centerline of one of the indexing flats in the collet holding the drill bit, then it works perfectly.

    Mine has an indexer built into it. Are you saying it's not right/accurate?

    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.
