I would like the measurements for the drill bit on making a nice flower pot from a simple black nursery pot. I saw it on this web site but can not find it now. Thanks.

If you're talking about the large 12" diameter pots; use the 1/4" drill bit and make 8 evenly spaced holes on the inner ring and 12 on the outer ring (at least 4 inches in from the edge of the bottom of the pot). If there are no 'molded' rings on the bottom; simply measure the pot side to side, find the middle and mark it; then draw an 'X' that is 2" high. Drill on each end of the 'X' and in the middle of each bar. Measure another 4" on each 'bar' and drill again. Just make sure the holes are not close together or near the outer edge and you will have plenty of drainage.
