start way too skinny & switch to progressively bigger bits (still way less than final ID)
that way OK to miss dead-center & final remnant will come out easy when it has no "meat in the middle"

THe BEST way is to mount it on a Drill Press and you  can center your bore and the bit won't wander about .
OR you can place it in a vice between two pieces of wood or similar material to keep from gouging the arm and then I would suggest to carefully center your bore from the Back of the arm and use a Center punch to start your drill as even a Gorrilla's strength can not hold steady enough to drill from the Rough Side .

Buy two DAM Quicks from Fred.

No losing reels, and not having spare parts :)


It came in today,,,put it on,,,work ok,,,,,and if the aluminum gets to cold when trout fishing i think a hand warmer will fit inside the 47mm knob,,,,,,,, ;D
