                    Any chances that the US goes over to use the metric system completely?

                              @Andrew Camarata, wouldn't it be easier if you grease those steel pins before pushing them back in? Wouldn't it slip in bit easier?

                                    Use a smaller hole saw as the pilot inside of a larger hole saw, for those rare occasions when you need to enlarge a hole.

                                                                                    I think it’s great that a multi billion dollar company pays big money to have this equipment designed and you show up break it or bend it and show them ( I’m sure they watch your channel also) where their flaws are your the best.
