    Yes. I used 7/8th bit and the tapered sleeve.

    Ok good. The 7/8" bit was a tad small for mine also.

    Check your tapered adapter. Mine did not have the cut that allows it to expand properly. I fought it for a while before realizing the problem. 7/8 was a bit small too if I remember correct.IMG_0346.JPG

    Check that they sent the right tapered adapter also. The company I bought mine off sent a teraflex adapter for a synergy TRE. It had no hope of working.

    the adapter should fit snug, you should be able to push it in by hand.

    if you have to force the taper in, the hole is not big enough and will not allow the taper to expand for the TRE stud properly

    I will have to check the invoice. Pretty sure it was. I checked it. Going to go buy a 15/16 buy and double check

    The TF one is knurled so pretty easy to tell them apart. Good luck and let us know how you go

    What the hell is so hard about drilling a straight hole?

    Worked great for me too!
