yeah this definitely needs to be done by a shop, or with a strong drill press at a minimum. When I replaced my heads I had them drilled out by a shop. I did just buy a nice used drill press for drilling steel. Makes a HUGE difference. I used to struggle drilling out 1/4" steel by hand with even good bits, but with the drill press drilling through steel is like drilling through wood.
Good luck,
