guys it's simple the hour hands are so close you can just turn the 53 drill bit by hand, dont even need a drill! on the 1.0mm i've got one of those cute hand power drills that the chuck closes to zero, chuck up the drill bit and slowly turn the handle!

Here is a pic of my high tech 14 dollar drill (ace hardware) i use to drill out the minute hands, just tape the hands to a board with blue painters masking tape and put the 1.0mm drill in and slowly turn the handle! Takes about 5 seconds! great thing about this drill is the chuck will close up to nothing and you can go nice and slow with it!
