Ken

I'm using a tailstock.
I just like holding the chuck in case it wants to spin.

It works like a charm.  Like Ron said, hold the chuck also cause sometimes you get a catch when using the larger forstener bits and it wants to spin the jacobs chuck out of the taper.

Nice Ron, same way I do it, I noticed it trying to spin about three times as you got deeper, that's the only way to keep er from spinning...

The piece is spinning around 600 RPMs, the bit is rated for 620RPMs.

i see, you match the wood speed to the rating of the bit.  small bit, faster wood...

it is common sense, same as with router bits, i just never put 2 and 2 together as for lathe drilling.  live and learn, that's what life is.
