Heat it up, heat hot.

Use rubbing alcohol to sterilize it with. Pour the alcohol into somekind of little container that won't melt. Light the alcohol and hold the bit over it for a while. That should work fine.

The price they put upon the heads of folks with poignant views
Would be better spent on the children without shoes
And when the King condoned the actions of the liar
He forgot to weight the awesom power of the village crier

I use a propane torch for my metals now. Super quick and very hot. I've got an auto igniting one, so it's not any extra effort (no lighting, putting out, lighting again, etc..) Highly reccomended, except things can take a while to cool, which is not good sometimes. Oh well. Seems to work well so far.

-good day, everyone

Use an alcohol lamp, hold the bit at the top of the flame, that is the hottest point.

Is this so you can insert straws into your cakes?

If so, just buy a 60cc syringe at any farm/vet supply store and some 1 1/2-2" needles. Fill the syringe with water, flame needle and insert into cake and inject a set amount of water, try 5 or 10 cc, use different amounts and take notes to see what works for you. Flame between cakes and thats about as simple as it gets. It would take forever to get the drill bit to heat up and longer to cool afterwards.

I once tried those red or blue straws that bars put into mixed drinks. They are small enough you can just shove them in and use needle to fill straw and let water soak in as cake needs it.

Just some ideas, if that is where you were headed. :biggrin:

if this is to use the drill bit to drill a hole in cakes, then just use alcohol. but if you are putting straws in cakes, then just cut the straw in half and stick the straw in teh cake. I know, i know, but on pf's site it says tthat a drill was used to drill holes in the cakes, well, thats my damn pic, i should know best how to grow them like that, so forget the drill and just put the straw in the hole

Mad skills, you know this!!!
