Ok, another question from a self taught hobby person. It is probably simple but. I have a large piece of steel round that I need to put about a 10 inch deep blind hole in. But do not have a drill bit long enough, and large enough to get hole started to even bore it out. The hole I need will be approx. 10 inch deep, and just over 3/4 inch 0.750 in dia, with a steel ball in the end that another shaft just under the 0.750 size would ride against. (other though was a thrust bearing rather than the steel ball). Any ideas. I know I could go purchase a long drill bit, but have not found one that is about the right length that I can get/afford at present. Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
