    I need to cut a hole to the bulkhead to fit a drain pipe in my lwb transit connect for carrying wfp pole.

    What tools do I need to cut a hole through metal bulkhead, I like to do it right and don't want to make any mistake which I am asking.

    Thanks

    Drill a load of small holes and then use a half round metal file to smoothe the edges off
    Just make sure to mark the hole the correct size but drill the holes inside the line so when filed it is a good fit
