Thanks I'm going to order one right now. But will this problem have any affect on trying to tap the holes.
Generally not, the case hardening isn't that thick. Enco sells carbide drills also, alot cheaper. So will any machine shop supply.

Since this was only hard on the surface, I ground off a bit of the surface and then drilled and tapped as usual.
Your mileage may differ.

Thru the years I have tried several different methods of tapping a clean hole without breaking the tap.....the one method that worked best day in day out was always use a new tap and lube it with a dab of Perma-tex 300 gasket seal.......if I break a drill or tap using this method it;s because I have allowed the tap wrench to tilt or I have gotten ham handed and rushed the job.
