Ryan---dont hold the piece in your hand. Support it on a bench, in a fixture , in a vise, something. IF the unibit 'were' to grab and bind in the hole, it 'could' twist, AND if you didnt have gloves on, it 'could' create a very hurtful situation. Thin aluminum can be as sharp as a knife---and we certainly dont want to see red stuff on shiny aluminum--or worse.
Yep sometimes in trying to get it done we forget the little things---and they cost us later--. Been there and yep it hurts.
