Beeswax, was how to drill into resin without breaking bits


Adrian Hundhausen
 

Group, my father just showed me the best trick of all time for avoiding breakage of drill bits. Once your bit is in the vise, dip it in beeswax. Drilling then goes 3x as fast, and I have yet to break a bit using this technique. Have tried it with many sizes down to no. 80. Beeswax available from Caboose Hobbies, Micro Mark, elsewhere.

Sorry if this has already been mentioned!

Best,
Adrian Hundhausen
