METRIC drill press speed chart
« on: May 30, 2012, 04:59 PM »
I've been searching and searching but can not find one. Really like the one from Wood Magazine
as it shows different bits used on different materials and have even tried to modify it in photoshop willing to convert everything to mm but I don't manage (the PDF file must have some protection of some kind). If anyone out here with tips or suggestions, pleeeaaase let me know.

Kind regards,
Mauri

The PDF does have text and you can copy that.

 Also Photoshop is not designed for text manipulation. You should be using a program like Acrobat or PDFpen, these are designed to manipulate PDFs

It is easy with photoshop if you're willing to make the chart as a picture instead of a pdf file.



Did a little part of the chart as example, with exact conversions of the measures instead of the common values we use over here. You can do it all yourself by following these steps:

1 - With the proper part of the pdf in view, press "Print Screen"on your keyboard.
2 - Open photoshop
3 - In the menu select File > New
4 - In the dialog make sure that under "Preset" "Clipboard" is selected.
5 - With the freshly opened new picture file, select "Edit >Paste" from the menu.
6 - Use the crop tool to crop the file to the size and area you want.
7 - Erase the old inch measures with the eraser tool.
8 - Fill in the new metric measurements with the text tool.
9 - Save file.

That's really handy ... did you save a higher resolution version or a PDF you could share?

Considering 0.5mm increments are pretty fine - the level of accuracy you have here is perfect!

Here you go;

I have tried to remain accurate in half increments at the tile/ glass section and in the hole saw shop notes' material thickness.
The file here is a jpeg under 2mb as it can be posted here. If you'd like the PSD file (7,2mb) which has a transparent background, meaning when printing you don't have to print all the white, pm me and I'll mail it to you.

Regards,
Mauri
