    I should have kept a coffee can of broken bolts and fittings I removed. I have drilled a few and did one a little while ago, was feeling frisky and picked up the drill and punched straight thru. If you are using a buzzer 3/32 7018 is the real way to fly. But,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I understand your spot.
    There are some tricks and been doing this along time, probably in the hundreds. The auto hood has made this a lot easier.
    One of the tricks about metallurgy,,, not that I know anything but the lock washer is just hard enough to add a little carbon to the mix and increases the twisting power. Click image for larger version

      I wonder if using a punch and just going clockwise into the jacket would have worked.
