Thanks for the comments on drilling fuel tanks.  It turned out to be "no problem."  Used a 2" hole saw and opened the hole to 59mm using a drum sander

I am at the point on my CH 750 where it's time to install the sending unit for the fuel gage.  I admit that I have been putting it off for fear of attacking that beautiful aluminum tank with power tools.  I know you other builders have done it hundreds of times.  I could use any tips on the tools used, keeping debris out of the tank, holding the tank steady, etc.

Thanks for the comments, this is my first airplane project.
