I could use a more controllable drilling device though.

And a bit less of the devils brew Tongue Sarcastic_hand

The score marks are trying to use a centre drill before the 6.5mm drill. They wouldn't cut but preferred to dance all over the metal. Just using the 6.5mm drill gave better results.

Center punch and a strurdy whack with a hamer will help keep the bit in place

RE: What have you got on order ?
I did that. They were well whacked with a hammer on a punch. I suspect the mill scale on that metal is very hard.

The centre drill still walked all over the metal. OK the centre drills were made of Chinesium...

But so was the 6.5mm cobalt steel drill. It didn't walk all over the metal.

I need something more rigid than my arms and hands to hold the drill in place.

Ah, you mean a younger man's hands, or perhaps a child's?
