Roll pins

When fitting roll pins is it correct to drill to stated size or the next size down as if you were going to tap the hole. I simply cant remember. Long time no use.

I think it should be stated size

Hi Mike,
You woke my brain cell up! I was thinking that a tapping size would be way too tight, so  googled it(where would we be without google?), with the following result

 https://www.google.com/search?q=hole+size+for+roll+pins&rlz=1C1CHWA_enGB612GB612&oq=hole+size+for+roll+pin&aqs=chrome.0.0i512j69i57j0i22i30l8.15039j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

So, about 3 thou undersize ;)
