- Drilling and threading - Unhelpful structure and lack of info, particularly on threading. --Smack (talk) 04:37, 15 March 2006 (UTC)
- The introduction needs to say a lot more. At least one term (swarf) needs to be defined, and there are a few very important, general facts that belong in the intro.
- The division of the entire article into two sections on wood and metal, respectively, is preposterous.
- Drilling redirects here. It probably shouldn't. I see a potential for two separate articles: one on drilling and one on threading or tapping.
- --Smack (talk) 03:51, 21 April 2006 (UTC)
- Should be called Drilling and tapping. A hole is tapped but a rod is threaded. However there is no mention of the tapping process (the application of the thread) here. Not very usefull....

The term drilling has many meanings, including:
- verb tense: boring a hole, in many contexts
- verb tense: training, such as military drilling
- noun: a 3-barrel combination gun
I think this article should be moved to something like "drilling (machining)" or "drilling (tool operation)" and the name "drilling" used for a disambiguation page, pointing to appropriate articles. scot 15:43, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
- Hmm... Bear in mind that those should really be covered by Wiktionary. I'll put in a wiktionary toplink for now. --Firien need help? 10:33, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:National Jet human hair drilled.jpg

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.

Hot water drilling
"Hot Water Drill" redirects to this page, but there isn't anything on hot water drilling (used to make holes in glaciers or in the arctic/antarctic, also possibly used to punch through the ice covering planets or moons like Europa). I'll try to get the ball rolling on that in the next few days but in case I get distracted, I'm making this note here. --184.108.40.206 (talk) 06:14, 27 November 2011 (UTC)
