I'm about to attach my scope mount to my denix. I know that I should use the tap and be very very careful with it, but I have the following questions:
1. I don't have a drill press, nor do I have access to one. Is it absolutely necessary to use a drill press to drill the initial hole in the side of the denix?
2. Can I use an ordinary drill bit to drill the hole? I.E. I'm using a 1/4-inch screw, can I use my black & decker 1/4-inch drill bit?
Any help would be much appreciated.
