Introduction: Drill Stop

Picture of Drill Stop

Sometimes you just want to drill only part way through your work. You can place a piece of tape to mark the depth and help stop the bit from drilling too far.

Step 1: Wrap the Bit

Measure how deep you want the bit to go and wrap the tape around the bit tightly.

Step 2: All Done

When your done, remove the tape,clean your mess and put your bit back.
