    better to drill them before doming then you can hold them with parallel pliers if necessary. Burring a divot is the best way as dennis suggests, then drill the hole. Personally, I would buy them!

    Thanks Dennis, I use silver tubing a lot for facets & cabs and do as you say, so far I have not had a problem. I am just very wary about gold because of the costs involved.
