" You can drill the Ti walls with a standard (sharp, maybe new) 1/16" twist drill and a drill press. Support the side you are drilling properly (!), run the drill not too fast, and be aggressive in how you feed the bit in. Should only take a few seconds.
Make the bail from a Ti bicycle spoke or some Ti welding wire. Oh well, try a bt of SS MIG wire maybe. "
+ 1 - all exact true and correct.
there is nothing else to know.
other than cobalt steel drill bits work a tad nicer for this task, and if you are really really desperate/determined to shave grams, you can get free ss wire from any of the better welding suppliers in .023 - .025" size if they have an open spool floating about.
when trying to support the pot for drilling, simply clamp a stick of wood in the vise, and drill into that.
