Oh yes you can.

I drilled all these holes in this SS "bucket" with a unibit to make what was originally supposed to be the firepan on my SSUDS, but is now a giant chimney starter.

It was pretty thick walled too.....

Now.....I'm not saying it wasn't tough.
AND.....I'm not saying I didn't trash the bit either.

BUT......I am saying it can be done.

AND, by the way.....there's about 1.58 MM in 1/16th of an inch, so the wall of my bucket was more than twice as thick as his 0.9mm drum wall.
