just use 2 3/4inch drill bits. or barring that 4 1/4inch drill bits. or if you really have to I could figure out the metric equivalents for ya.

me thinks you really need a hole saw.

I have an 1-1/2" hole saw, but I doubt you want to drive to Livonia to get it.

What are you installing?

Hole saw. Home Depot, Lowes, Lumberjack. Around 10 bucks.

Correct $17 @ ace and doesn't include pilot bit.

I think I need 1" and 5/16 th need to put a handle on the radar arch for the Sarge

It may be close we will have to measure it against the washer from the handle you gave me
Or I could just get a little smaller washer.

That handle had studs coming off of it that should only need about a 1/4 - 3/8 inch hole.

It's about time.

I just asked her Sunday where the handle was when I was walking across the boats. I thought hmmmmmmmmm a handle right here would be nice.
