Russ, I don't think my drill bits are high speed. I'm willing to go out and buy a pack of 1/8'' high speed steel bits and see what happens. Thanks for your approximate times: I must average over an hour of labor per hole at this point...

Russ, you were right! I got a pack of six 1/8" high speed steel bits, used only one! I attacked my last and toughest hole at full speed and counted so I would know if I eent over one minute! Nope! Wow! I was amazed! (An old gentleman had told me that milk increases the grip so I put some on. I'm not sure it helped but it didn't hurt...). Then, I used every single bit size, I couldn't skip one!

Then, I needed to pierce the other side of that piece of the frame. Two holes were decent, the other two were too easy. So maybe the frame didn't need the extra support, but these two holes make me think it u
On to a different project next week!

PS. My wife was with me to help paint so I spent part of the morning preparing the different doors to be sanded. She was also there to share my success...!
