Quoted from Mk1Mod0:

First, of course, I did a dozen or so tests to find the maximum drill bit width allowable while maintaining grip of the screw and structural integrity of the part. Any good fabricator knows you always test it first. You'll know the hole is too small when...

Excellent work.

But for future reference, there is a drill size chart for screws sizes available - although not sure how well this translates for use in plastic: http://www.wlfuller.com/html/wood_screw_chart.html

Or this one if using machine screws: http://www.boltdepot.com/fastener-information/us-tap-drill-size.aspx

Quoted from Mk1Mod0:

Yeah, well... just not my favorite part of the country, and my sis will probably never leave there. I see where I lucked out with the weather and am happy as heck about that. It's funny that people who have lived down here all their lives are curious as to 'what it's like' up there. I tell them that aside from the 50 degree temp difference it is pretty much the same. Everyone has a weird accent and there are signs in the Qwik Mart that say "No foreign money, please!"

You should come to the "real great white north" - Canada - then if you want a 'real' adventure. :p
