    use a mosanary bit for the size you need. The coating is not like glass, it will just drill away. If you are concerned, put a little water down like a cupfull as you drill, to cool the bit.
    Have fun.:)

    Is this a volunteer effort or paid contract? I know, off-topic, off-topic, but I always enjoy to hear about volunteer work! :hide:

    I wondered about that as well. Seems like a very good community work if it's a volunteer job... :clap:
