They are a little expensive, but this is the way to go.  You get nice round
holes.  I try to drill from both sides which is a help. You can get step
drill bits from good old Harbor Freight cheaply.



Use a step drill bit.

This is not a "drilling steel" question, it's a "drilling
aluminum" one.

I have a Sears drill press, and can vary the speed, as
needed.  Can 
someone tell me how to drill small holes (for pots,
1/8-inch phone 
jacks, RCA phono jacks, etc.) in typical small aluminum
chassis (plural) 
so that the holes aren't triangular?
