## Basic Hole Making

### Machine Planning for Hole Operations

• Not all holes are equal!

• Some holes are rough holes

• Some holes require tight tolerances

• Some holes are compound features

• Consider hole attributes when selecting hole making operations

### Attribute 1: Basic Shape of Hole

• “Simple” thru hole

• “Simple” blind hole

• Sub-features

• Threads

• Counterbore

• Countersink

• Spotface

### Attribute 2: Size of Hole

• Diameter

• “Standard”

• “Non-standard”

• Very Large

• Very Small

### Attribute 3: Tolerances of Hole

• Dimensional Tolerances

• X – Y Location

• Diameter

• Geometric Tolerances

• Perpendicularity/Angularity

• Circularity/Cylindricity

• Straightness

• Other

• Surface Finish

## Hole Making Operations

### Center Drilling

• Mark the X – Y location of the desired hole

• Prevents twist drill “wander”

• Especially helpful when:

• Workpiece is not flat

• Holes are not perpendicular to the part surface

• Close positional tolerances are required

### Drilling

• Twist drill is most common drilling tool

• Creates or enlarges non-precision holes

• Drilling is a roughing operation

• May produce coarse, helical feed marks

• Poor dimensional accuracy

• Creates small burrs on entry, coarse burrs on exit

### Drilling (Cont.)

• Twist drills always follow existing holes

• Twist drills require workpiece material on all sides of the hole

• Twist drills only cut on the bottom of the tool

• Cutting forces are greatest at “break through”

### Drilling Tools

• Four “series” of twist drills

• Fractional - 1/64” - 4” in 1/64 steps

• Letter - A (.234”) to Z (.413”)

• Number - #1 (.228”) to #97 (.0059”)

• Metric - .5 to 80mm

• Common Twist Drill Wear Patterns:

• Burnt corners - spindle RPM too high

• Broken edges/cracks - Feed too high

• ### Common Drilling Techniques(with twist drills)

• Center Drill all holes requiring accurate X – Y location

• Peck Drill deep holes (more than 3X drill diameter)

• Step Drill (drill pilot hole) large holes

• Select pilot hole slightly larger than the drill web

• Do not select pilot hole that is excessively large

### Boring

• Boring is a single point cutting operation

• Produces a precise internal cylindrical surface

• Enlarges and straightens existing holes

• May be used to modify existing hole location and orientation

### Boring (Cont.)

• Produces close tolerance holes

• Good surface finish is possible

• Good roundness

• Accurate diameters which may have non-standard diameters

### Reaming

• Uses a multi-fluted cutting tool called a Reamer

• Existing hole is enlarged and accurately sized

• Requires an appropriate size hole in the workpiece prior to reaming

• Refer to stock allowance charts

### Reaming (Cont.)

• Produces close tolerance holes

• Good surface finish

• Good roundness

• Accurate Diameters

• Does not modify existing hole location or orientation

• A reamer follows an existing hole

### Tapping

• Tap produces uniform, internal helical threads.

• Requires an appropriate size hole in the workpiece prior to being tapped

• Refer to “tap drill” reference charts

• Lubrication is essential during tapping

• Produces small chips

• Use pecking motion to break chips

### Counter Bore

• A counter bore is a cylindrical enlargement of a top of an existing hole

### Spot Face

• A spot face is the smoothing and squaring of surface around the top of an existing hole.

### Countersink

• A countersink is a conical enlargement of a top of an existing hole.
