But really, this is a great idea, and if I'd seen this thread before i bought my morebeer SS false bottom, I might have done it myself.

Yep... 1,023 Holes. I counted them! Oh. And 66 slots with an angle grinder! But. That work got me 93.7% efficiency on my first batch with it!

Wow...for the price of two "drills" one could purchase an actual false bottom.

cobalt bits work well in stainless, and find a drill doctor to sharpen the bits.

zzARzz,
Nice job on the pizza pan. I really liked that magazine (BT). I was one of their inaugural subscribers back in the 90s. I stopped brewing for a few years (15?) and that magazine didn't make it.

Drills are cheap... even good drills. These cost me nothing. My Dad and his Dad were in the aerospace industry as tool makers for quite a while. These were some of Grand dad's leftover HIGH-END drills.

Are you thinking Drill Motors? The actual cutting tool is called the drill... the motor you hold in your hand is mistakenly called a drill by a LOT of people. Besides, I did these all on a drill press with a sacrificial piece of wood behind it to help keep burrs to a minimum.

What does that make the motor inside the drill motor? The drill motor motor? Only teasing...

Husco,

Actually I thought you made a typo and meant to say "drill bits". Sorry for that.
