    This is a small clip showing in more details the method I used in the umbrella handle video.
    For those odd jobs when you don't have the proper drill bit and you only need a couple of holes in an uncommon dimension.
    Using this method you have great control of the finished diameter, allowing you to slowly get closer to the perfect fit. The resulting hole is perfectly round and centered with the original hole.

Only a genius can think of this simple solution!. For 30 years i had enlarge holes rather crudely by manoeuvring the drill bit obliquely into the hole Or sometimes i use a round file to wiggle through the hole,,its very tiring.

Why not using a bigger drill bit or just use the same bit & circle on the sides?

The point is you might not have the proper drill bit, like in Europe you don't have a 1/2 inch bit, or in my case i did not have a 14mm bit, so I used a 12 mm bit and enlarged the hole. I only needed one hole so going out to buy this size of bit was pointless as I'll probably never need it again. Circling on the sides never produce an accurate hole.

Ingenious. I have some marvelous Festool wood bits that are of course metric. I can use them more easily when I use Imperial gauge dowels. Thank you

Thanks, it's pretty accurate actually. It's similar to reamers used for metal and allows you to sneak to the perfect fit.
