I was too cheap to buy a set for years and just burned up bit after bit on stainless. I worked on a buddy's car for him and he bought me a set as a gift because I would let him pay me for the work. It was not long before every single HSS bit in my shop went away!

I bought a drill doctor shortly after, and I am never without a sharp drill bit now.
Don't know how I survived all these years without either one.

As I stated above I've heard real good reports of how good those carbide bits work on stainless.

What I'm curious about Pops, is how you held them washers down in order to run a bit through them..? From my own past experience I know it couldn't have been that easy.

There's some humor that's not hard to find in this, but you get the point. A regular steel bit would have been blackened toast in just a few seconds of this torture.

With a real drill press that would have been less impressive. That one is a high speed bit burner.

To tell you the truth Dano, it wasn't all that bad....I admit I do have limited equipment and abilities (sometimes).....However, my bench "vise" (Rick ) did a pretty good job in this case...Its just about the perfect size for such things.
