    I think you might have dull bits from using them wrong, that should have taken like max 15 secs per hole

    Lol damn, a 9/16 is way over kill for that and only one per side isn't enough to combat flex, three 3/8 would have been more appropriate or maybe two 1/2. You need to spin larger drill bits slower, can't be full sending them or they'll dull from too much surface speed.

    I like to hit it with a punch twice to put a nice indentation so the drill bit doesn't walk.

    And use plenty of pressure. Too little and they just slide instead of cut.

    It's easy to start spinning the drill faster once it starts to bite, but really it's the slower speed and downward force that'll help cut through the metal.

    Man... Was walking my daughter in her stroller, almost back home and a large elderly guy with a cane was limping down the sidewalk. Have seen him before, think he lives a block down. Anyway we get about 20 ft by him and I hear a THUD followed by this painful cry. Dude tripped and fell hard right on his head. Ran over and parked the stroller and helped him up. Saw he had blood running down the side of his face.
    Got him some towels and bandages from the house and luckily some other people came out and were able to walk him home since I had my kid with me. My daughter kept going 'man fall DOWN man fall DOWN' over and over to him lol.

    That was shitty though, feel bad for the guy

    That is awesome that you helped him. There are so many other people that would have just walked the other way. Well done!

    Turned around and saw it and can't imagine not doing something, people would have to be stone cold hearted to do that.

    but I was thinking the whole time 'fuck, I hope this guy doesn't have covid' lol.

    That came out well. I guess you lose a little space at the corners of the bed for sliding stuff in/out but if it keeps the bed from splitting and splaying outward then it's a sacrifice worth making

    It's only cause of the bolt used for the D ring he has, otherwise I marked them for the brace to be towards the tailgate for minimal loss of space.

    I found the smaller Lincoln welders are a little finicky, but the big ones are nice.
