How did you drill the large hole ? I tried but the hole saw wouldn't go through the stainless steel. I asked a metal worker and he said I need a special saw for that.

When I first got the idea that I can use a stainless bowl to make a skycap type reflector, it seemed to be far harder than it actually was.

You mark the socket hole with a marker, drill a pilot hole to fit a jig-saw blade (for metal) and carefully rotate your hand-held jig-saw as you cut a neat round hole. You need to put on safety glasses. I lightly sanded the cut edge just a little, but that was it.

I forgot to mention that cutting the hole with the bowl overturned, the bowl rim itself supports your jig-saw with ample room for the cutting blade below. Too easy.

Where did you buy that specific mixing bowl? I'd like to modify a yard blaster with this..

Try any dollar store but any store with kitchen utensils will have a variety of bowls for about $5-$10.
