I make a lot of wind chimes so I do a lot of drilling.  Go to “Harbor Freight” and buy an inexpensive drill press.  You can get one for about $50 using a 25% coupon.  Then, get a 3mm hollow core diamond drill bit (personally I usually use a 5mm).  Then get a shallow container that will hold water, a small sponge, and a piece of glass or tile to put below the sponge (to keep you from drilling through the container if it is made of plastic.)  Put just enough water to cover glass as it sits on top of the sponge, and you can drill holes all day long.  You can drill a hole in about 15 seconds.
