    Just do a search on "Custom Step Drill", and you'll get dozens of guys that do it. They'll all be a little costly, especially at 3/4", but I've had custom tools made and it only hurts for a few...

    I'm waiting to see how it really shakes out. I think I'm running the "Pro" of 7 on everything anyway, but I'm waiting to hear from IT guys that they can effectively keep their systems running.
