We have need to drill a 5/8 diameter hole in thousands of sheetmetal canisters. At present we're using a hole saw (with center drill) to drill the hole. The drilling process produces a slug that often drops inside of the canister and needs to be removed -- time consuming to remove. Anyone have a good idea to either insure that the slug remains with the drill bit or a different type of drill bit to use that might break the slug into chips?
