end lengthwise. I clamped one end in my cheap drill press vise() so it stands
and tried to center drill it. (I know it's bad to clamp long peace by one end)
wasn't bolted to the table. It vibrated really bad but I managed to make a hole
broke a tip of the center drill :(
Then I rotated my worktable vertically with bolted vise so my work piece is
horizontally so it won't vibrate. I found that it's impossible to accurately
position so drill bit gets into the same hole. I removed vise and after
workpiece manually clamped it with wise-grip clamp.
I hated the whole process it was a pain and holes where inaccurate. I am lucky I
break the drill bit.
What is a "right" way to do this? I am planning to get a xy table but for now
all I have
is a cheap drill press vise from HD.
