    About that bit I'm using... I hadn't meant to be mysterious about it, I just didn't know what it was called. SRP member RoyalCake gave it to me a couple years ago, and the markings are very difficult to read. So all I knew was 'it's my special drill bit'. Not very useful to anyone but me, actually!

    Well, here's a link to where you can buy a set of them:

    They're high speed drill/countersink bits. Pricey, yes, but for drilling out razor pins, they should last forever. The one I'm using is a #2. Google turns up a lot of hits for drill countersink no. 2.

    Thanks! I miss you guys too! I learned so many neat techniques from you guys and brainstormed even more.

    I've got a handful of other restores I just haven't had a chance to get pictures and writeup on. I should maybe get on that!

    Lovely work amazing
    The drills you use are also sold as center drills to machinists for lathe work
