    drilling and tapping

    I am trying to install some keenserts on a aluminum plate, can I just drill and tap the hole with a standard drill and tap Then install the keensert?, or do I have to purchase a special drill and tap for the keensert?
    hope this made sense,

    thank you

    I think Keenserts are standard drill & tap. Look at the specs on them. Here is an example https://www.clarendonsf.com/products...inserts/kn420j
