I did check.....a few times. Maybe someone smarter than I am could have found them pretty easy, but I could not. But I'll be darned if I didn't just find some youtube videos showing how to increase the size. Have to look at those tonight when I'm away from the Net-Nanny.
Thanks for the help everyone.
You're working on interior doors, right? 1 3/8 thick? This leaves you enough space to slip a 1/4 or 3/8 block of plywood into the jig on the back side from where you are drilling. Place a layer of blue tape over the hole, (on the backside) clamp the sacrifice piece of wood and jig into place and clamp as tight as you can. Now drill, slowly progressing, let the tool cut, don't overheat the cutting teeth, it dulls them, heat is your enemy when drilling. When the drill gets through the door, keep drilling until the teeth have cleared the back side, but you don't have to go all the way through the sacrifice block.
Doing things so that they turn out nice is often to much work, that's why it pays well.
