    I've done that with a small segment of beam, in my trailer shop. Vernon, do you have the adapter to use twist bits in yours. I do and it is awesome. I have a Milwaukee and its almost new. My old drill press at the home shop does most of the grunt work.

    Peace,
    Paul

    Big hole indeed, I would recommend the adapter and chuck. Cool plate press for your mag drill!

    Does your adapter use a 3/4" shank With flat spot for set screw
