About: I like to tinker and experiment with electronics, robotics, programming, and photography. Along with my latest interest in Steampunk.

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.

    At first I thought "Well this is simple, why would-" then I remembered I just googled for this. One less headache, works for me!
