    Found a new way to cut a clean hole in Kick-ez pad for stock wrench, I took an old arrow cut it to 3 inch sharpen the inside chucked it in my drill press after drilling a hole larger in the hard plate put a few drops of break free and set it on a wood block and it bored the smothest hole , the plug stayed in the arrow shaft. You can use it as a plug for the hole if you want. I though I would share this with everyone. thanks Ronnie

    Alf99- I have also used 357 brass to cut holes. After I mounted the brass on a rod through the primer hole and put the rig in my drill press, I sharpened the edge with a fine file by inserting it into the brass while turning on the press. I then cut a few very small teeth similar to a saw blade in the sharpened edge. Brass from a 357 will allow a deeper hole than a 38.

    Seems like any piece of tubing cut to length and sharpened would work well. Marc
