Drilling 35mm diameter holes in 35cm long piece of wood

Postby emabear » Wed Jan 31, 2018 1:05 pm

I am struggling to find a way to drill / bore a 30mm dia hole into a 35cm long piece of wood. Grateful for any thoughts. Many attempts have led to overheating, problems with chip dispersal and drill wandering.

Are you trying to bore right through? So a 30mm wide hole, 350mm deep?
What drill bit or cutter are you using?
