32 mm line boring machine w/drill press?
Hi to all,
I want to drill holes using the 32 mm system with 5 mm holes and exploring my posibilities, of course, I can buy any of the machines on the market for that purpose, but that requires to spend a good amount of cash, the other option I found very interesting is using the festool hole system, spending some 400 bucks for it.. I found some other technique using a router and a wood template, which was the most affordable, but could not put a 5 mm bit in my router ( I found Festool sells one , but with an 8 mm shank.. not even a 1/4 inch, the 5 mm bits for line boring machines have a 10 mm shank) , so I was wondering if someone here , in any part of the world come up with an idea , technique that I could do holes spaced 1 1/4" apart, with the 5 mm drill bit in my drill press? They are a lot of holes, the vertical panels are 84" , so each panel could get at least 120 holes per side! Anything I could put on my drill press and start making holes? I spent the last 3 hours searching and researching.. there has to be a genius out there... there has to be.. My drill press working as a line boring machine making 7-13 holes at a time.. ( am i dreaming or stilll typing..?)
