I'm so happy to hear from others about having to glue pieces back on. I really thought I was the only one, lol! Thank you Stoney for all your advice and you're absolutely right I always come in at an angle with the drill bit and I have no idea why. I need to practice just going straight in and just using the tips of the bits. I always use the whole thing. Another thing I need to practice on.

Thank you Cirrus too! :Thumbs_Up:

I like to use hot knife for some things. I think I saw this trick on here somewhere, but I used a little grinding wheel to shave off the back side of a hot knife blade. This makes it a lot easier in hard to reach places.
