Re: Make Nuc Entrance Disc
What i have done is to make two entrance holes (each end) screen one and use a simple pivoting rectangle of wood as a reducer/closure on the other.
Alternatively drill 1 1/8" holes for entrances and then you can use the cap from a standard plastic water bottle to cork it up. Cut a triangular hole in a cap with your pocket knife (or or a hot nail head or use a spent cartridge case to punch a hole) and you can use it as a reducer. It also happens to be a pretty good size for a nuc entrance.
I've made entrance discs before, and I agree with the previous posters - when you consider what they cost to buy and how much work they are to make, unless you are really strapped or just want to fiddle around - buying makes sense.
Also, if you do use any kind of power tool on a small piece of metal such as a can lid, don't try to manually hold it down - clamp it securely - or you will likely have an opportunity to be posting pictures of your injuries.

Reason: I just can't stop myself.
Merry Christmas to all - especially to congress for not kicking us in the knees again.
