What do you do when you have a 0.688" diameter drill and you need a 0.697" diameter hole? This sort of question is common in shops that have a limited selection of cutting tools. Kyocera's DRV Magic Drill series can accomplish a radial offset to drill larger than the existing tool. The 0.697" hole shown was drilled in 1018 steel with a S100-DRV0688-5-05.  Inserts were SCMT060205XMECA520D and SCMT060210XMIPR1535. Speeds and feeds used were 390 SFM, F.0016 IPR. The surface finish is very good due to excellent chip evacuation. This sort of versatility and performance enables shops to utilize a single tool for multiple jobs.
