    Thanks for the photos, Dave. That is indeed a scary-large bit, I bet it sounds like an old DC6 with props running full blast!:D

    I like the dual-use nature of your pin router, making it an "attachment" for your regular router table. How long does it take you to convert from router table to pin router, and vise-versa?

    Deneb, that is beautiful machine work and design, it brought a smile to my face. You are a talented designer and builder. :cool:

    About two minutes Rick! I used to reset the position for each overhead frame in the early days but it is now just held in position by four right angled 1/4" rods through holes in the table top corners and appropriate positions on the ends of each corner of the frame.

    Great video and test fit. You even have a spring-ring pliers that actually works and doesn't launch your spring rings to the moon!:cool::eek:

    I am confident that you and your dad will come up with a most satisfactory method of extending that drill bit shank, and I'm looking forward to seeing it. ;)

    That made me laugh Rick! I too used to have an ongoing problem with circlips. About one in three was a good success rate when I was working with that stuff. After a while I didn't even bother to look for the the ricocheting clip as I firmly believe they are all directed through a worm-hole in the space time continuum and are orbiting a planet somewhere near Betelgeuse.

    Many thanks guys!
    Unfortunately my father is no longer available for this world (already 11 years old). I hope he does great things in another world.
    But, I will try not to let him down. Here are some things that my father did for me.

    25 years ago, we did not have access to good woodworking tools.
    Originally these cutters were designed for metal processing.
    But I asked my father to make a pilot on a cutter and remove a cone on a shanks (for a drills).

    Hey guys, you make me laugh.:lol: I bought it to disassemble a circular saw DeWalt. Did not want to buy the original a spring-ring from the USA (in case this is a spring-ring will take a course on the moon or betelgeuse). The purchase of such spring-ring pliers, cost less for me.:) And now it came in handy again. ;)

    From what I have seen of your building threads Deneb, your Dad is right by your side in the workshop guiding your hand.

    Definitely, easy to see where you get your engineering skills, Deneb!

    I'm glad to know where all those damn rings that shot off of my cheap Circlip pliers went! I only know they never went anywhere you could find them ever again, and always long after the hardware stores have closed!

    Deneb,
    You may be able to drill the frame this way and avoid extending the step drill.

    Paul,
    Yes, I will do so. The problem is elsewhere.
    The drill bit is not long enough to drill the inside of the pipe.

    Deneb you can drill the top hole in the correct position and then make a template of its position and transfer and mark the bottom hole position using that. If it is still slightly out of perpendicular you could enlarge one hole and add a larger covering plate with the threaded nut attached to it and then align perfectly with the top using your shaft then clamp and fix the oversize plate to the bottom frame when aligned correctly. Sounds a bit funny I guess but hard to explain. I comes down to this......." Make one and then adjust the alignment of the second to the first using an adjustable position plate which you weld when perfect.

    DC :confused: ????????????

    Deneb,
    What size is the shank of the step drill? Is it hexagon?

    Guys, I'm almost at the finish. So, a result will be known tomorrow. And now about all step by step:

    For a better fixation of the drill bit, I make a groove.
