In this video, we are shown a how to drill a hole through stainless steel using an electric drill. By using a drill bit made for metal it is possible to create a pilot hole which will guide a larger drill bit through the stainless steel. Non-combustible lubricants can be used to reduce friction and stop the drill piece from blunting. A drill piece can also be submerged in water to keep it cool. Never submerge the drill piece whilst it is connected to the drill. It is also possible to use a spray bottle to cool the stainless. It is notable that metal should always be clamped down to avoid injury from rotating materials. Glassesï should also be worn when cutting and drilling any sheet materials.
