Hi 36,Unfortunately for him he doesn't have access to a drill press and most likely not all the other amenities we enjoy in our shops, so the step drill appears to be a good option. I've used a step drill to make many many holes with no problem when I couldn't get the piece in a drill press. As I suggested in my last post to him, get his step drill from Drillhog, they make a good product and they stand behind it.But like any product it is only as good as the person using it, if not done right it can be a piece of junk, I said take your time and use oil and it should work out ok for him especially since he doesn't appear to be working on a critical part where he needs precision. If that were the case and needed precision I would load it up and take it to a good machine shop and have them do it if I couldn't get the precision I need in my own shop. Some times though you just have to use what you have on hand or can get inexpensively. God Bless, Beth and Allen.
