using quite a coarse bit of sandpaper
tape it or clamp it down.
then with your drill at a 40-45 degree angle.
bevel the edge of the pipe using the sandpaper & drill,
while your holding the trigger down slowly move the drill left to right ,because you dont want to be going through the sandpaper.
once you have a nice bevel.
its onto the next step
Step 5: Drill Away
grab a scrap piece of wood.
and start drilling away.
if the tube skates all over the wood.
go back to the sandpaper and change the angle slightly ,
down and up movements with the drill will get you there.
