Now there's a great quote! Glad you are okay. I hate when I do stupid stuff that causes some kind of injury or damage that I could have easily prevented, but somehow, I seem to keep doing them! So you aren't alone....

I'm glad you didn't keel yourself. You did esplain it rather Comically and it was funny..... but only for a second....... I'm glad you where not hurt badly.

The main reason I said something is because of exactly what you said. When I get hurt... I am almost always, tired in a hurry and in a hurry....

I bought some titanium coated bits... I don't know if it is snake oil or not and I do love carbide and sharpeners both... but those suckers are still sharp and they stay sharp.. been drillin quite a bit and have not replaced one yet...

Sit down and buy yourself a good sharpener and you will be one happy man...

I'm convinced we're related somewhere!
I have done almost the same thing...you know those collars on the door pivot shafts with the little set screw that holds the door centered in the opening? You guessed it --one was loose and as I was holding up the hatch it slide left = out of right socket and fell on the goard!!

I learn all this stuff the hard way!! I am starting to hide these facts from my kids!!

Let me tell you what,drilling those rivets is tough.
You have to start out with a small drill bit,then go up to about a 5/16th bit.
I bought some new drill bits from homey depot,dewalt bits and ryobi.
Yeah,right.
Those cheapo bits may work good on something,but its not on a BB rivet.
If you can get one rivet per bit your doing good.
Now,I have 10,000 drill bits,some sharp,some broken,some stolen and some military surplus,most all of them are auction finds.
I have from 3'' down to some .020 small ones.
So,i picked through my bits and got a handful of the best and went to drilling,so far i have to drill maybe 20 more.
So,cool off time is over,its back to drilling for me.
