    Hey you miss the security recomendation: Use Glases, and dont remove by
    hand the chips or the piece of steel , because of that, i have in trouble
    removing it form my fingers, auch!. instead use a wet cloth to remove it
    and throw away..

    hey, can you recommend me a good drill that would be powerful enough to
    drill through stainless steel about 1-2mm thick? preferably the cheapest
    possible :P

    I wouldn’t use glasses because unlike plastic goggles, glasses can shatter.

    Thank you for sharing your talent ! I’ve been surfing around trying to see
    what kind of drills to use to drill holes through stainless steel flatware.
    I saw jewelry made out of spoons and forks & I’m one of those ladies that
    see a craft and say “I can do that!”
    —– but I’ll be darned – I can’t drill those holes or bend those fork
    tines ! I do everything from sewing – to fusing glass – to wood to –
    ceramics – and my iron worker son even taught me how to do easy welding !
    Stainless steel has me baffled . I can’t even solder the damn stuff!
    If you have time, can I pick your brain with a few questions ? I would
    soooooo appreciate your words of wisdom !! Kathy (

    I drill nearly half a dozen 1 -1/4″ thick stainless steel for a product.
    Don’t know why I took the job but I broke 2 or 3 bits doing so. I’ve since
    gave up because it sounded like kids scraping the chalkboard all day with
    fingernails. Bits were called heavy duty spiral bits.

    Good tip. I add dish soap to my water, cools & reduces friction.
