How to Drill a Bowling Ball
There are a few basic steps to drilling a bowling ball. Begin by locating the center of the ball. Start your drilling by using a small drill bit, then progress to a larger bit as needed. When drilling, always keep the pressure on the bit and use a steady hand. If the drill starts to lose power, back off and start over. The goal is to create a hole in the ball that is deep enough so that the string can be threaded through it. Test fit the ball at this point to make sure it is tight and true before continuing. To finish, use a bristle brush and clean up any remaining drilling debris
To drill a bowling ball, you will need the following materials:
-An appropriately sized bit
– Bolts or screws to attach the bowl to the frame
– Jigsaw or saw
– Sandpaper (120, 220, 320 grits)
– Safety goggles
Tips on Drilling a Bowling Ball
Drilling a bowling ball is a task that can be easily completed by anyone with some basic equipment, but there are a few tips that can make the process go more quickly and error-free. The ball should be drilled with a bit that is the same diameter as the ball’s outer cortex, which is the layer of rubber on its surface. A slower speed is generally better when drilling bowling balls, as this will help prevent heat distortion of the ball. When drilling the center of the ball, use a bit that is twice the diameter of the ball’s outer cortex to ensure even depth control. Always allow enough time for drilling, as this process can take up to 30 minutes per ball.
