I don't get it...instead of making a circle of little holes, why not just get a drill bit of the appropriate size or are they just not that easily available?
Drilling with a brace or a hand drill into steel...that must be pain in "le derriere."
As a kid, before my mom got an electric drill all we had was a really old brace and bits we found in the basement for drilling into wood. That was an experience!!
I'm surprised braces and hand crank drills are still made!!!
