they held real good with the 2” diameter inserted drill going 5.25” deep in 1045!!
These are one of those items that you never knew you actually needed until you bought them. I don't think that I would make a machine without these on the table. It makes cleaning up 1000 times easier. And it gives the machine a distinctive look.
Love my Octane slot covers. Highly recommended!
As a gunsmithing shop, we aren't making huge piles of chips, but we do work with a lot of very tiny tools and parts at times. Keeping those parts out of a T-slot full of swarf saves us a ton of time looking for these micro parts. Now they all drop on the floor as God intended, and where we can find them with a broom!
