For drilling PCB's, you'll want to get a set of numbered drill bits
61-80. Your local industrial supply shop should have them. I got mine
from a place called J&L Industrial Supply (Chicago area - and maybe
elsewhere?). Fractional equivalents for the numbered drill sizes are
available in various places. Maybe the rec.crafts.metalworking FAQ if
you don't already have a source?
