Long story endless: I ordered trailer plans from Master Plans and so far so good. (I'll post pics someday) I'm building the ramp and the plans call for making the hinges out of 1 3/4" X 3/16" plate, which was hard to find. But genius me I decided to improvise and upgrade and use 1 1/2" X 1/4" thick plate. I have to drill 1/2" holes for the 1/2" bolts. (diameter btw) So I'm drilling with my Dewalt 14 volt cordless and it's slow going. So I run to Lowe's and buy a smoking new Milwaukee Drill. (7 amps something like 3000 rpm, debit $135.00) Back at the house...still pretty slow. Go to Ace Hardware and purchase new Dewalt 1/2" cobalt drill bit. (debit approx $20.00) Back at the house...Success! For exactly 1 and 1/2 holes I'm a drilling machine! Then things slow down again. The bit got dull. Talked to a "do it yourselfer"/fireman/Civil Engineering friend and he said slow the rpms down and oil the bit every so often. Any suggestions, people??? I have 6 holes to go and don't get paid again for two weeks.
