Drilling Question: to the handy mans out here

Hello,

I have a few messing sigil pendants, i want to drill a small hole in them.
What kind of drill and drill bit, do i need for the metal of messing?
Do i need to pour water on it while drilling to cool it?
Do i need to drill very slow?
What are the things i must look out for as ricks?

Here is a picture of a sigil

These should be a good starting point for you.

I’d use a carbide bit. If it’s just a pendant I don’t think you need water, especially if they are not steel. But if you want to be extra sure a can of WD-40 would be better. And be sure to have a clamp to hold it down. Ideally with rubber or scrap leather between the pendant and clamp to keep from damaging it.

Off topic. You changed your profile pic and it confused me lmao. I’m not used to all these changes people keep doing with the avatars. It confuses me so easily :sweat_smile:

Edit @Hexa Amazon has a lot of jeweler bits and they make them for dremels as well. It doesnt appear to be too costly to get a good little set up going.
