Default Keggle Drilling...

How long did it take you to drill your holes into your keggles?

DIY Keggle Conversion (video!)

Scroll down and find the video where he drills his hole, I think Yuri's times are pretty accurate.

I used a bi-metal hole saw...ya it took about 30 seconds with someone squirting a bit of cutting oil on it. for me.

Well, maybe its my step-bit, but I couldn't for the life of me get the hole drilled... I work in a mech. eng. facility, spend about 5 hours a week in the machine shop, and have never had this big of an issue drilling anything... I used both the bridgeport machining oil as well as the lathe cutting oil, slow drill speed, clamped the keg down to a work bench so it couldnt budge, and still nothing... It's gotta be the step bit if those times are accurate... Unfortunately, this is a BRAND NEW step bit...
