For those of you that made your Girling reservoirs, how did you drill the hole for the fittings? I can't get it drilled without the leaving sharp edges that I can't smooth and deburr. I'm worried I won't be able to get a good seal with the washers and fittings.

Thanks
Joey

I used a stepper bit on a lathe. But I think a stepper bit on a drill press would work too. Just used a simple deburring tool to clean it up a little.

I drilled mine with a step bit and drilled slowly. No problems to date

Stepped bit and careful deburring here also.
