exactly why i didnt drill the sear. clamping the sear and putting it in a drill press may work, but i have no drill press. i have a hand drill and a dremel. neither of which i was going to try to drill a prefectly straight 1/8" or so hole into a tiny piece of metal.SwampF0X said:...for most home DIY'ers it is darn near impossible to drill the sear. I tried it a couple of times and won't bother with it again unless I get some heavy duty machinery and tooling.
I tried to anneal the part first. I didn't have much luck using a propane torch.
I tried using the BIG milling machine at work but it wouldn't accept a small enough bit.
I tried using a hand drill and titanium drill bits with cutting fluid. I broke 1 drill bit. I drilled the hole off center but finally got it drilled.
