It is possible to drill stainless. A high quality drill bit is needed plus patience and a cutting fluid. "When cutting or drilling stainless steel, maximum tool life can be achieved when the strokes of the machine or the revolutions per minute (rpm) are reduced to 1/3rd the maximum speed. Stainless steel also requires a moderate amount of pressure applied to the cutting tool. [Don't let off on the pressure.] The addition of a cutting fluid will further reduce friction and heat and extend the life of your cutting tools. Always remember, faster is not better when cutting stainless steel." http://www.renovation-headquarters.com/stainless-steel.html gives general advice. http://www.practicalmachinist.com/vb/general/drilling-304-stainless-steel-191927/ has machinists gabbing about this topic from an expert's point of view. Thanks, Gary H. > -------Original Message------- > Question for you great knowledgeable group o car guy/gals. I'm closing the gap on my long ram install. The linkage I created seems to be functional as tested tonight but. What I'm looking for are those little clips that fit over the carb throttle lever then clip over the rod preventing it from falling out. Seems the stainless steel rod I used doesn't want to be drilled for cotter pins The rod is 1/4". Any ideas?
