Centre drill without a lathe Answered
Can anyone suggest a simple way to accurately drill a hole in the end of a dowel so that it's perfectly centred and parallel to the sides?
I want to install hardware in two brush shafts to make a break-down pole that will support a tarp, and will fit in a car boot.
If you imagine the brass hardware you see in a snooker cue, you'll get the idea.
I could make a jig to hold, and align, the drill and dowel but it's a lot of fuss for a rig I probably won't ever use again.
