I used a titanium bit with a self starting tip ($11). Did all my holes with a Black and Decker cheapy drill. I drilled full power and Leaned into it.
Warning if you push too hard, and it cuts a big chunk it will lock and try to break your wrist. Have twelve holes.

And if it doesn't break your wrist it tears your tendon and that means surgery, (just got over that one) Be very careful drilling.
