I've got the BEGI bit, but I'm having trouble finding a drill that's big enough to use. All the ones I can find are > $500 and no one around here has one for rent.

What did you use?

a regular hand drill and drill bit. I drilled it on a slight angle and fixed the angle when I tapped it.

Nevermind this thread guys, I'm a tard. I'll leave it intact so other tards can catch the mistake.

I thought my drill was a 1/2", but it was a 3/8"
