How to Drill a Circuit Board

When selecting drill bits it is a good idea to select bits made for drilling circuit boards, there is a difference.
Drill out the holes that will be used to pass component leads through. When drilling the boards you should use a drill press on the highest speed. If you try to drill the holes by hand I guarantee you will break quite a few bits since circuit board bits are very brittle.

That’s it, solder in your components and call it a day.
