How to drill through commercial metal table leg?
If you have a commercial metal table leg in your way, and you need to drill through it, there are a few things you should know. First, you need to have the right drill bit. Second, you need to drill at a slow speed. Third, you need to use plenty of lubricants.
The best drill bit to use for drilling through metal is a high-speed steel (hss) drill bit. These bits are made specifically for drilling through metal and they will stay sharp for a long time. If you are only going to drill through one or two metal legs, you can get away with using a less expensive drill bit, but if you have a lot of metal to drill through, it is worth the investment to get a good hss bit.
When you are ready to drill, put the drill bit in the drill and tighten it up. Then, put the drill on the metal leg and start drilling. Go slowly at first and then increase the speed as you get through the metal. It is important to use plenty of lubricant when you are drilling. This will help to keep the drill bit cool and it will also help to prevent the drill bit from getting too hot and burning through the metal.
If you follow these tips, you should be able to drill through a commercial metal table leg with no problem.
