A stepped drill bit is a good thing if you want to put holes up to 5/8"
or so in panels, not terribly cheap but they last quite a while (don't
forget to use some cutting fluid!). stepped drills are great for modding...
swiss cheese anyone?
My drill bit is VERMONT AMERICAN, I use a spray can lubricant called
'Cool Tool" (I am not making this up).

BTW if you are a cheapskate (and who on this list isn't?) at yardsales you
can find very good battery operated drills with nicad cells from yesteryear
that have died.... these are good on the bench with a plugpack (BIG ONE or
DIY rectifier/power transformer) plus they are light with the old battery
