When drilling SS you need to go slow and keep from heating, the heat
hardens the SS as your drilling. What I found to work best is using
a hand drill and inching it.
Gosh!! I can't imagine it being any "harder" than it is now!! The
metal actually seems to "chip off" like glass!! These spheres appear
to be already molten metal spun as is... But they are in two halves
that seem welded together and then ball polished to final
shape. Since they are very popular I guess they can justify sort of
exotic processes to make them. Rather than "dent", I wonder if they
would not just "crack and split" if hit really hard...
BTW - Be sure to wear safety glasses and all for sure!!!
