drills for drilling tools

"• For steel and cast iron with hardness above 200HB and easy to machine stainless steels

yes, as opposed to a set/defined specific tolernace hole di
Explanation:
Hole tolerance: If possible, do not specify hole size tolerances any smaller than +/-.003. Boards are usually pre-drilled .003 to .004 larger than the finished holes size to allow for copper plating inside the hole

Drilled hole size- Finished hole size plus 3 mils for plating (1.5 mils per side) plus drill size tolerance. Drilled hole tolerance is +- ½ mil based on input from Procket’s main suppliers. Because this is such a small error, it does not need to be included. The 12 mil manufacturing tolerance more than accounts for this.
