    Crooked Holesaw

    I drilled it incrementally to 1" then with a boring bar in my lathe started cutting .060 per pass. Holes saws do not like to cut real deep, they can if you keep it well lubed, but AL likes to build up and jam. I use carbide replaceable tooling and one tool bit cut the hole from start to finish...

    You had to load some driver software for the wireless device that is connected to your computer. Win 98 is not really savvy about wireless so you are going to have to launch the wireless device software, it should then ask you for you SSID and your wep pass phrase.

    Are you using WEP, if so enter the Hexidecimal password into the WIN 98 box. You might be trying to use the ASCII code and it doesn't want it that way.......I spent 2 long days with that oversight.
