Is there anything else I should know about this?
I use a wine degasser, with little "wings" at the bottom that open when it's turned. But I also have seen "wine whips". You could google that to see how the curve is.
Start very slow at first, as you don't want a volcano to shoot up out of the carboy and into the drill, thereby electrocuting you.
After the volcano slows, you can speed up. I don't do it steady (it might burn out my drill) so I do it a few seconds, and when the whirlpool slows and the bubbles die down, I do it some more.
