Drilling Holes

That's me using the drill press (3/8" bit). If might be able to get away with a hand-drill, but this made it much easier.

Careful of the metal shavings.

The fabrication took place in Mr. Toth's workshop. He was helpful in figuring out the best way to get each step done.

We used a countersink drill bit to polish off the metal shavings that were hanging off the holes.
