Just started my first build and already run into some trouble. First the templates, the ones for a 1,5 inch barrel where too big. Maby a inside/outside diameter problem. I fixed it by changing the dimensions a bit and that worked fine.
I marked the tube and started boring the holes, first using a small bit some guideholes and then I used a larger bit to make the holes the right size. And then the trouble began. I used the wrong kind of drillbit and I broke some pieces of the barrel. I have to start all over again.

This means a trip to the hardware store tomorrow to buy a new piece of pvc and the right drillbit.

this means more delays and I was really hoping to get a good start today,

I can't figure out how to attach pics so i can't show you all what went wrong (any help with that?)

pardon my english i'm not a native speaker and dislectic, it's not that my english is bad I just can't write it down

The proper drill bit is a must. Are you using a drill press or a hand drill?

I'm using a hand drill. I was using a drillbit that is sharp at the edge with a small point in the middle but I need one that is more pointy. I'm getting one after work today.

Sounds like the kind of drill bit meant for wood only.

Hey, don't get discouraged. I've made a few mistakes along the way, but I've also learned a lot. I don't believe that any first-time builders haven't messed up once or twice. I'm nearing the end of my build and as much as I'd like to say that I've built a perfect replica - I can't, but I'm satisfied with knowing I tried my best. So far, it's been a great experience. Keep trying and you'll see what I mean.
