Default drilling holes in homemade mashpaddle not going so well

just drilling pilot holes, taking forever, there's smoke coming out of the holes and I'm thinking, "holy CRAP! this maple sure is hard wood"

finally got the pilot holes done, put in the 1" flat bit and, "holy CRAP! this is not gonna work at all... maybe I ought to start with the ½" bit."

So I go to change bits when it hits me how much a dumbfookin' idiot I am



hint: it's a reversible drill d'oh!

The good news is that you don't have to tell anyone about it. Oh wait, never mind.

I know that feel all too well, i had the same mistake when i was drilling(or trying) to drill my wooden cigar box for my stir plate.

It wasnt until the last hole that i realized what was happening...

I'm at that point where I don't mind anyone knowing what a pig-effing idiot I am, though I get a bit embarrassed if I'm not the first one to point it out.

it's the price I gotta pay to make someone, especially the BigHair, laugh

and she gets to laugh every day

LMAO!! My only question is why did it take you so long to figure that out. With in the first second of the bit not going through, I would have checked..

Some people just shouldn't be allowed to abuse power tools. With a keyless chuck drill it shouldn't be too difficult to have it going the right way. Well, it isn't for most men.

in my defense, I haven't done any woodworking since junior high, in the '70s.

my commie little brother is the woodworker in the family

Dude, knowing how to use a hand drill has nothing to do with woodworking. If a bit doesn't start going INTO the material being drilled, then either the bit is beyond dull, or you're going the wrong way. If the bit is fairly new, or hasn't been used much, then guess what.

How many drinks did you have before you started this?
