Need to use a drill press or something

I need to use a 3/4" heavy duty drill press or an Iron Worker or something to put 1" and 7/8" holes in some 3/8" plate so I can finish my suspension tabs.

I'll use my own bits and bring your favorite frost beverage. I can also provide excellent conversation.

I'll lend a set of hands if you need some help on something or I could possibly let you use my plasma cutter while I'm there if you need to get some cuttin' in.

Find you a set of cheap step drills. Thats what i use. And i a dam machiniest. You can drill half way flip over and drill the other half. I got a set from H/F supply and have yet to dull them.

I have a 1 inch bit. I had to drill 24, 1" holes in my rims to make them fit my rockwells. I used my regular drill press...................

You can use my drill press although I think the drive might not be worth it. I just use a hole saw and lots of cutting oil.
