What type bit do I use to drill drainage holes in resin flower pots?

I have tried all purpose drill bit, even a titanium one but they aren’t working out. Do I need a more powerful drill (20 volt cordless is mine) or am I too impatient? I’m just a beginner In handyman chores.

    I used a cordless and had no problem. Is it fully charged? The bit I had was a general purpose one.

    General purpose bit should work. Your bits may be dull or dulling during drilling. Sometimes the angle of the drill bit point is to shallow to cut into the resin. Try drilling a pilot hole with a smaller drill bit first then go up to the size bit you want to use. If you still have a problem use a masonry drill bit.

    Use a drill bit that is made for glass, tile, etc. they have a head that looks like an arrowhead. This way the cutting tip starts at the very tip of the bit. On conventional bits the tip is flat and the cutting tip doesn’t start until where the angled part meets the flutes (grooves).
