Drilling non circular holes with the help of geometry
posted March 10 2011 21:24.01 by Giorgos Lazaridis

I happen to like geometry for many reasons. Today, i stumbled upon this excellent video from core77. Using a geometrical construction named "Reuleaux Triangles", it is possible to drill non circular holes with a lathe or a drill. First, watch this video:

Amazing isn't it? Now, watch the following video to see how this system works:

Not only rectangular holes can be drilled...
