    A drill bit can always be used in a pinch to bore especially in plastic, but will never replace a boring bar.
    I thought the You Tube video was slow paced and I got tired of waiting for the action to begin. Just a suggestion, maybe speed up the video a bit and it could be more interesting.

    Thanks to make this video, it can help a lot of people, this technology was used professionally about 50 years ago, I have in my magic box a turning tool made like a drill but especially by Ifanger in my opinion for turning internal diameters.
    It was made to simplify the grinding of tools, but it was not longer used as I have just found one piece since.
