I used my step bit as well. Take your time and it does a good job.

Good luck and just make sure your using a good one with a drill with plenty of torque.

Step bit for sure. I used motor oil for lube and made good holes.

Motor oil might provide good librication for the bit, but i prefer not to use anything with detergents and chemicals i dont want to ingest. (No matter how clean i think i got it later). I used cooking oil, and gave the bit a rest every few steps to prevent it from overheating...but it was going into a keggle, a pot would be a bit easier going.
