Mill or file one end to exactly half its diameter for a length of ¾" to 1¼". This flattened portion is critical; if it’s more or less than half diameter the edge cannot cut freely.

Chuck Uses Rubber Insert. In place of the usual spring-held jaws, this new line of chucks from The Jacobs Manufacturing Company, Hartford, Conn., utilizes a single molded rubber triangle to which the jaws are permanently bonded. In one model the chuck is hand tightened on the drill or other tool; in another (illustrated at the upper left) it is first hand tightened, then made machine fast by means of a hex key that turns the cam above the follower.

Close Chucking Saves Drills
[no value]

C. W. WOODSON
FREQUENT breakage of very fine drills can be reduced if they are chucked short, as shown above. If the chuck itself won’t permit this, run a ⅛" drill up into the chuck body, thus getting clearance for drill shanks. Very high spindle speeds and good cutting oil also help cut down excessive breakage of these small drills.
