Lesgold’s inspiration

Postby chipboy » Sat Jun 13, 2020 4:11 pm

Starting off to be a copy cat, why not good ideas are great to find.

Starting off a little bit poorer / harder off

Typo fixed mate, and that is one of the reasons that this forum is great is because members share their knowledge and experience freely :handgestures-thumbupleft:

No need to be so bloody rude mate.
I’ll try explain the situation as I see it.
Chip boy has been inspired to copy Lesgolds build, and unless I’m wrong , chip boy has found a cheap way of cutting holes.
And chip boy is offering his extensive electrical engineering knowledge with the group.
Happy now Yonder ?

Absolutely correct, copying the design and doing what he did, just saying a big thanks to Lesgold personally as he permitted this to happen.

So this leads us to this

Thank you all

Yes mate,

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/15mm-100mm- ... 3076030975

the product is good (my opinion only), delivery quick. Order a few and dilute the postage.

Use cutting compound AND keep it slow always, pulse them if required. The smaller the diameter the quicker they will cut so be careful with them as going quickly will dull the tips quicker, no compound more so.

Regards

Looks good
The description on eBay says it comes with "tct hole saw with key". Is it safe to assume that this includes the arbor / pilot drill bit?

Correct, each with its own spring arbor (good quality) and allen / hex key.
