Henry has been drilling the holes in his Lego earrings for a while but I always set the drill press up for him. I figured it was about time to teach him how to set it up as well.
Putting the drill bit in the chuck.
Tightening the chuck.
Turning it on.
Positioning the work.
Drilling the hole. He drilled about 30 legos.
I still helped him out but he's making great strides towards understanding how the drill press works and how to drill a hole where he wants it to be. Now we need a lathe project.
Here's a great tutorial on inlaying precious metal into steel.
