    What drill and drill bits should I get to start drilling airholes? I own carpentry drills, I think I have some higher power drills lying around somewhere around here.. Do I need anything special? Will a cheap drill work? I know I have a cheap drill...

    wow so I can do this with a manual hand drill, that means I could probably do it with a cheap drill I guess?
    Alright cool. I'll look into these pin vices and see if I have drill bits or if I can pick some up.

    So basically i'll be good with the drill I have I'm thinking?

    I just enlarged the single tiny hole in my tank cartomizer with a crappy $15 Walmart hand drill and 1/16 drill bit. Never done it before and it worked like a charm!

    cyclotron, I'm just curious--what are those pin vises for with respect to what we do here? I know they can be used for twisting wire...but other than that, I'm at a loss.

    "This pin vise is for holding drills, taps, wire, small rods or tools to work on multiple projects. It is great for instruments, models and jewelry, or where ever fine drilling is needed. It contains 2 double ended collets sizes: 0-.125 or 0 to 1/8 inch. There is internal storage under the freewheeling hex shaped spin cap which is perfect for the palm of your hand."
