I am well and truly lost in the land of speed drilling. The ounces removed could have just as easily been removed from my old fat ass. However the reduction in weight from my ass would not look as cool as the holes in the hub.
In the beginning there was measurement and great trepidation.
Then there was a void of a fine roundness in form.
First hole set up and then drilled while holding my breath. I still have a phobia about cutting and drilling perfectly good parts. So I tend to be a bit cautious and yes a bit afraid of making a really big, stupid mistake.
Now the clean up and dressing edges and then a general polish up and the front well is ready to lace to the rim.
