rr spike drifting

Recommended Posts

Hello all, iv been having a problem drifting a spike to fit a handle.  I start off with a drift made out out 5/8 sucker rod, but when it starts to open up to around the 5/8 mark the metal on the outside of the eye always splits or cracks.  I tried it 3 times last night with the same result.  Anybody have any suggestions?
