Help drilling kettle (cole harbour/dartmouth)

Post by wader98 » Tue Jan 16, 2018 8:33 pm

Just received a new 10 gallon kettle today and looking for some help drilling 2 holes. One for ball valve and the other for element. My step bits are not big enough...
Can offer $ or coffee...no drinkable beer yet!
