A cheap spring loaded center punch will help get the hole started without walking the bit everywhere and is a good tool to just have.

Wasn't so bad, was it?

The drill bit walking around is why I recommended hitting it with a nail punch; didntcha listen to me?

[QUOTE=doubleb;1560318Thank you all for the replies. I couldn't have done it with out your encouragement. Here's to many more holes I'll be drilling. [/QUOTE]

Good job! You would have felt like a Wuss if you would have had someone else do it for you.

The word punch freaked me a bit , so I stayed away from it this time. When the next opportunity to use a nail punch comes by I'll check them out.

You're probably right. I'd also feel like my wife made my decision for me. Doing it myself was the best way cause now I've got some cool new bits and a file I didn't use.

I need help on this too!
Let me tell you how i do my brew.
I have just one alumino pot, its hold 50L (13gal) i do my mash in there over the stove, then i move the grains to my botltling bucket and sparge the wort in my pot to boil it, after the boil done, i coll it down, and with a hose i siphon it to the carboy.
I need to know, can i put a ball lock in this pot and a ss braid on it, to mash the grains and boil the wort? when the boils done, just open the valve and the hops will been filter? Its need to be a special ball lock? i was loooking one i few days ago, and the ball inside is made with plastic. it will dont melt during the boil?
or perhaps i should just buy another pot to do it?
need help pleasse!
