Thanks Bruce.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Back to the sink. Oh no, not the sink. Yes, the sink.

I originally drilled the hole for the drain, and at the time, hadn't thought to include the recess to put the stainless steel drain in.

So, I managed to cut the recess like this, and included a partial pic of my shoe... - you know, for those inquiring minds. (red circle).

Here's what it looks like with the drain just sitting in place.

I used a contraption like this. After all, if I am going to re-invent the wheel at every turn, well, lets get to it!

Here is a modified version of the hole saw I used.

I originally used a 2 1/8" hole saw to drill the hole. As such, I cut a piece of mild steel roughly 3 inches long that would fit into the slits in my hole saw.

Then, I cut a taper on both sides, and both ends to allow for some clearance while cutting.

I then drilled a hole in the center of the steel and ran a screw in from the side of the hole saw to hold it in place while using it.

Here is another view of the hole saw with the adapter I made. I also removed the drill bit that is normally used as a starting hole for the hole saw.

Since I was going to use the outside of the hole saw as my "pilot", there was no need for the drill bit.

Now you can see how this picture makes a little more sense. The drill was attached from the bottom and pulled down to cut the recess. I still need to put finish in the recess to make it water proof before use.
