home brew I think those doughnuts might be make believe; just like the the title of your thread was - "Mikey's make believe punch". Besides you would have to fill those holes anyways.

modas I did use the search engine. I obviously didn't use the right key words when searching.

modas HA HA!

We have a winner! One dozen, fresh, well semi-fresh..., somewhat fresh,... slightly moldy, heck even the shop guys won't eat 'em donuts heading your way!

Thanks a ton!!

oldred I remember that post but I can't find it either I remember thinking at the time that unless you have a very heavy drill press it would be a lot of strain on it, too much IMO. I think a cheap arbor press with a hard pin mounted to it pushing the sheet metal on a plate with hole a few thousandths bigger than the pin would work better or maybe just a hand punch unless you need to make a lot of slugs..

OneMoreTime Actually one can make a guide out of 3/4 ply to guide a hole saw..take the center bit out and clamp the sheet metal between the guide and another piece of ply and do that..but then if your using 20 gauge metal just scribe a circle and use a pair of aircraft snips and make your piece..a bit of filing and you are home free..Either way works fine. tho I do the snips deal most days..

looking for a specific post

Hi Guys -

I'm looking for a post (I think it was in here) of someone using a drill press and a blunted drill bit to make metal slugs to fill holes in sheet metal. I tried doing a search but for the life of me can't find it.

If anyone knows what I'm refering to, and could point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
