How do I drill a long hole lengthwise all the way through a post to make a standing lamp?


That has not been the case in my limited experience. The Forstner bit has these two sharp edges that slice through the cured finish without chipping before the two horizontal cutters contact the finish.


These 3/8 in. holes for flush mount ferrules were drilled with a Forstner bit with no tape and no chipping. The red in the holes is from a felt tip pen.


A 12 in. drill press will do the job.

Got to disagree with that statement. I don't see how that method could be more accurate that the method I linked to above.....and besides, how many of us have a machinists table on our drill press? Here's what they look like when done with my method.

Pebble Art, as I like to call it, is becoming more and more popular as people find themselves appreciating natures treasures and the enjoyment of scavenging for things such as driftwood, beach stones, pebbles, sea glass and found bits of china.

In a time and age where we feel the need and desire to recycle and re-love old, used and found objects, Pebble Art has found it's place in many a professional jewellers repertoire and craft makers workshop.

With a small amount of equipment you too can begin to drill holes in small stones and pebbles and start to make jewellery, lamps, keyrings,...

So, I've seen a lot of questions regarding wa handles on the boards lately. Because of this I thought I'd share the method I've mish mashed together from various unfinished tutorials hanging around on the internet (plus it gives me a chance to have my methods critiqued by those who've gone before me lol). My tooling is semi limited...I have the basics plus a bit, but no lathe etc. Honestly though I think one could do these with as little as a vice, hack saw, hand drill, files, and sandpaper (careful use of a buffer helps though!).

So first, a list of the tools I use:
Radial arm saw
Drill press
6"x48" belt/9" disc combo sander with 120 grit and 600 grit belts
XXC/XC DMT plates (you could substitute sandpaper on a piece of glass for this)
Wood clamp (any type will work, I'm using the lever type, but screw types will do just fine)
Dremel tool with a small zip bit
Epoxy (I use basic gorilla glue for the glue up, and gorilla glue brand 5 minute epoxy...

This is interesting. However, I wonder (publicly) whether it is voltage drop which is the problem. I would have though that breakdown voltage is the key statistic.

As everyone knows, it takes a significant 'overvoltage' to start a gas discharge. Once the gas discharge starts, then the voltage decreases significantly depending on the available current (higher current may cause lower voltage drop; -ve resistance region).

This is why I wonder how you can talk about discharge lengths without specifying the available current.

Without actually trying this, I would have thought that a narrower tube would have a higher current density, and hence lower voltage drop. However, I will defer to your undoubted experience here.

The point I would like to make, is that we are trying to prevent dielectric breakdown in the gas column in the first place (not worrying about how it performs after it's been "lit") - this will be independent of the tube...

This resource would not have been possible without the help of countless folks throughout the Internet. Not just T owners, but mechanical sites and others as well. I found it only fair to give credit where credit is due. If I left out specific names I apologize in advance, it’s mostly done for brevity of the document. Please let me know if you desire credit in the future and I will endeavor to add you in any revised printing.

Thank you Adrian Winget or
