If ya just do like I said, OIL, WOOD backing, START smaller then go bigger, IT WILL WORK, I PROMISE.
P.S. I bet if you look at the back side it has a slight bulge in it. Hence the wood backing for support. It is pushing hot metal and rounding out to the roundness of yer bit.
FD thanks it worked like a charm.
