    One thing to perhaps change is to run the small drills slower. I know the usual wisdom says to run at high RPM but without a high feed in rate to with it, the drills will just rub and heat up. Slower RPM allows hand feeding without that overheating risk. Feed pressure of course needs to stay within the limits of the drill size, a 1mm drill can only take so much axial load.
    A side benefit in stainless is less risk of work hardening.

    You are getting HSS drill bits (the ones from Microscrews are HSS) or you are going to try drilling HSS? HSS is generally rock hard and them tempered.
    I will verify that the drills I bought from Microscrews work on Allen screws, I think I have already done that but will check.

    If the screws are stainless, then it is likely that the screws work harden while drilling making the task challenging. Stainless can be a major pita to work.

    I'm only drilling Allen screws but not making much progress. I'll get some HSS to see if theyπŸ‘ do the job.
    Crimpers arrived today. They seem to be good and solid with plenty of interchangeable heads. Not played with it yet.πŸ‘

    Perhaps it is what you are trying to drill and thus using the wrong drill technology? if I can drill silver steel/drill rod and stainless all day long with them then it is not the drills. (My main hobby is machining)

    Are the drills not sharp? Drilling oversized/undersized? I love mine, in steel (esp drill rod/silver steel), al and brass (although most drills unmodified are a bit grabby in brass).

    Maybe but someone else had 8 years after her along with the union to get to today's place. Esp. in recent years the union demand history reminds me of Billy Connolly's Demands Keep Changing skit.

    To the original poster, sorry for the diversion. I hope you are not disappointed in the drills!

    Hi Gerrity, you are suffering the lasting effects of Moya Green, she wrecked Canada Post, she has just left Royal Mail in almost as bad a position, we were told there was no christmas post date for Canada back in September

    At least you have postal service, the clowns over here arranged for delivery backups of international parcels well into next year. Can't even order from most places outside Canada as they won't accept post from overseas for at least another month.

    When I do get to order from EU/UK, I save the VAT but pay it on shipping :-)
