I used a 7/8" bi-metallic hole saw. I got it from a Tru-Value hardware store.

I used a step drill bit. Costs more but I can use it again for other projects that I have to do. You can find them at HD or Lowes and also at Harbor Freight.

Buy cheap, buy twice. Or, in the case of a step drill bit... buy 8 or 9 more times.

I got a 7/8 step drill at HD for $34. It's made by Irwin. it went through my big SS brewkettle like butter. Just use a LOT of pressure on the drill, and let it turn VERY slowly, and keep it oiled (3-in-1 works great) and it just marches right through.

I know what you're saying! But if you happen to do projects around your house it will come in handy again. Besides... it's part of the man tool collection.
