Seem like many folks are regularly drilling holes so this might be a useful video. I had inquired about creating a flat bottom hole for a socket head screw and was going to get and end mill to do this. I was going to plunge cut the taper out of a counterbore that I was going to drill with another appropriate sized drill. I do not have a mill and was going to use the drill press. I would ONLY be plunge cutting since we all know that most drill presses cannot take lateral loads well. Seems like many folks did not like this idea and recommended the technique shown in the video labeled How to grind and use a flat bottom drill.
