Re: [BKARTS] Punching 7/32 in holes



I use a gadget called a paper drill. Check with David Speil at
Norton Speil and associates. 877-BINDERY -- they have the
drills and bits.

=====
Pagan, Pagan, what are you finding?
Yours is the road that winds lonely and far,
Strange are the shadows that round you come creeping,
Still through the clouds is the glint of a star!
