Started drilling today. I handled the drill, my wife was nice enough to handle the water flow. 2 - 1" holes drilled, 5 total holes to go. Man was that nerve-wracking though. You read and read, but actually doing it was a stress. Am I keeping it straight enough, is my drill's wobble too much, etc... Plus I am drilling horizontally (we cannot tip the tank over)... In any case both holes went OK, although there is a little chipping on the edge of the hole (just before the piece fell out, inside the tank). Nothing the bulkhead shouldn't be able to cover over. Anyone have any recommendations for that?
