Note: a drill press is not a precision machine. I need to get the old high speed drill on the bench and sorted.
So one hole worked out okay, but was a bit high, over the line. So I faced off the extra on the lathe, and tested the micrometer spindle, a few times until it worked.
#44 drill bit, lathe in back gears, and it spun off like silk. Now they need a cleaning and a good soak in the de-rust-it. Then over to the super penetrating oil.

Wonder how much I have in these 14 dollar mics now?
