the greenlees are actually easier to use on curves surfaces. The cutting edge isn't straight on, it is two ovular sort of points. So when you put your pilot hole in, you have to hold the cutting edge stable until you bite into the stock.

Ok, if you've done it, then you'd know better than me. I was worried about the cup. I'd hate to have that cup bend the curve of the tower.

Why not just use a metal holesaw like you would on a Keggle? Alot cheaper than a greenlee.

Easy to do, I've added 2 to my original single faucet tower. I marked with a Sharpie, then Uni-bitted to something like 3/4", plus or minus.

Something to keep in mind: while there's tons of extra room for the shanks and lines, there's not so much room when it comes to attaching everything. Think about how you're going to get at all these shanks before final layout. I wish I'd have placed a little different. Kyle

I think I'm going to insert my unibit into hole #1, mark the size then create hole #2.

Welp, that sounded mighty dirty.

Haha! Indeed. But if it ain't dirty, you aren't doing it right

I might do that if I can't locate a greenlee - but the greenlees make unreal clean perfect holes
