Self Drilling

I'm trying to bore holes into metal window frame so as to install window venetian blinds..?

I am using an electical drill with a 1/8 drill bit to drill holes into the metal window frame, but it is not working.. Do I need a special drill bit for metal surfaces, or is it that I'm just to weak.. Let me know..

Try using a "self-drilling" screw if the windows are aluminum!! If you have old steel frame windows, you may be drilling for a while. If so, I would move the brackets to the side of the openings or out on the face of the wall, providing your blinds are wide enough. This may pose another problem if you wall is masonary. If so you may have to retool again. GOOD LUCK!!!!!
