I'd put a dowel in it. A 3/8" dowel which would be a good size.I was thinking not about the drilling per se, but drilling just the right size for a BT-5. Has anyone got a bit for that? Of course, one could start smaller and finish with a boring bar, but that could be a real bugger with the softness and weakness of balsa.
As for doing it my drill press, I simply didn't want to assume that Marten would want to take it on, and I could do it in the drill press, where at the moment I couldn't in my lathe.
