You might try practicing with something you don't value so much, made of metal, and cylindrical. Next time you empty a large tin can try out your technique with that.

plasma cutters make the best pilot hole. Clamp the ground to one end of the pot, position the torch where you want the hole and one light tap in the trigger and Viola! Pilot hole.

Lol @ the plasma cutter option!

Dude, it's really hard to **** up. Use a starter punch (or a nail) so the drill bit doesn't walk on you. Use a quality bit. Use some cooling oil. Let the drill do most of the work.

Time to buck up, son. You'll feel a lot better doing it yourself.
