    I’m looking for a hand tool that can make 3mm holes in 4mm thick ash.  What would you recommend?

    thank you

    I have a set of hex head drill bits that I use for most small holes. I also have a friend with Forstner bits that he can put into his brace.

    So that can I understand what you want, you want to put a 3 mm hole in 4 mm stock. Leaving a half mm on each side of the hole.

    Are you planing on doing this with a hand drill or a drill press? I will tell you the best drill bits, are the brad points from Lee Valley. Their drill bits have a lip, that cut a cleaner hole. With that tight tolerance, I would probably drill some practice pieces first.
