Do not be hesitant or embarrassed. No one need know the depth of your skills, as the words are most often spoken in private, or muttered well below a level audible to others.

Not to criticize, but "dangitydarnheck" is suitable for the fabrication of teddy bears or flower arrangements. Aircraft and racing vehicles require powerful expletives, as the juju is strong. Here are a few tips for effective deployment of suitable words and phrases.

Unless raised in a convent, you're already familiar with the most popular four letter words. The secret lies in matching these key words with colorful pronouns and adjectives. For example, the phrases "You dumb.." or "I'm such a stupid.." can predicate a wide variety of four letter favorites, and are particularly appropriate in the case of miss-drilled holes.

Advanced applications include preliminary phrases. For example, a loud exclamation describing female canine parentage may proceed one of the previously given pronoun examples.

Like most skills, effective builder profanity requires practice. Lock the shop doors, chuck a #30, drill a hole in your finger, and be creative!
That is just too funny! LMAO!

Note - for beginners, a #40 drill bit is sufficient. #30 and above are for advanced students.

If you do this with a #30 or above, you will quickly "advance".

I got an early jump on things and drilled my finger (#40) right in front of Mark Forss at the Sportair sheet metal workshop. He looked at me as though I might have been the single stupidest person walking the earth at that moment. A tail, wing, and fuselage kit later and I've never repeated that mistake.

Hahaha, this thread is fantastic!

I have to ask though. What did Van's support come back with as a repair?

DanH, the gift that always gives. The last time I drilled my finger intentionally, i final drilled through my thumb nail #40 to release the pressure of blood flowing to it after just slamming it with a hammer. Btw, slamming it with the hammer was not intentional.

I especially liked " a loud exclamation describing female canine parentage "
