    Recommendations for a spot weld remover

    Well it's been a few million years since I've been on here! Nice to see some amazing new projects and that people seem to be getting on better again.

    My house is nearly finished and I have a new kit car (bought finished) in the garage.

    I've also been sitting on a bit of a resto project for a while.
    I need to drill out a few hundred spot welds and wondered if anyone has any recommendations?

    Thanks!

    Just a spot weld drill. Very time consuming work.

    Thanks. I was thinking of something like this

    5/16" Premium Spotweld Cutter Kit w/ Pilot Pin
    But I'm not sure if this is harbor freight quality or better.

    That looks like a better quality than Harbor Freight.

    Shop around, I see this on-line with different price tags.

    Nothing wrong with the harbor freight part. I bought a "better" one at a local tool place that I killed within 12 spot welds. I bought three at harbor freight for the cost of the better one and I'm still on the first one after having done maybe a hundred more spot welds. The biggest thing is keeping it square and preventing it from wandering (good center punch).

    I'm currently using the Harbor Freight ones and they seem to work just fine! Still not a whole lot of fun!!!
