Good tip Rick Thumbsup

Hello Dave,

I wish I could take the credit for the idea, but Q Max sells the larger sizes complete with the bearing,
So, credit where it's due.

Whatever it is, do it today, Tomorrow may not be an option and regret outlasts fatigue.

Just for anyone else thats interested I am sure you can get Qmax type cutters in square and other switch hole type shapes too.
