Any tips on accurately drilling so I don't go askew on the way through? Bear in mind it's got to be done outdoors with a generator running the drill.
Hi Nos

Do you have a router? If so, with the right size bit line up and plunge cut to the depth of the cutter.
Thereafter you have a hole deep enough as a guide for a standard drill bit, simple's!

It's raining. Won't be getting done this weekend unless the sun comes out!

However, I DO have access to a router (dum dum dum...)
