I have a problem drilling into end grain with high speed drills. The drills drift off the mark into the softest septa when I need to drill a straight hole at a precise point. A small drill just bends to the softest wood septa and larger drills (3 / 8″) just push the wood piece aside. I’ve used standard and pointed drills. Forstner bits are not available in the sizes needed. Jack K
