Thanks for the pictures, they made me younger. The second is rather puzzling. I hope you managed to squirt some oil on the drill and at the bottom of the hole when you took it out to clear the shavings. The lathe will soon be amortized !

The first bolt I had spinning too fast and slow it down this is the bolt in the pictuer.
Yes the hole goes all the way through and I use a lot of oil to clear out shavings.
I cant count how many times I took the drill and the tap out to oil and clear shavings.
The tap for sure or you will just end up with a broken tap work ruined.
These taps get real hot just by tapping by hand if you leave them in hot they will get stuck so you have to take them out so they and the work can cool off.
I usually make about 1/2 turn and back up to break chips so it takes a long time.
If a person is in a hurry and wants to get it done fast and not the kind of person to take their time they dont need to be doing it.
Taps are so hard they are like glass almost.
When a die explodes it sounds like a small gun going off.
I always wear safety glasses around this stuff.
