Default What do you use to make holes in scrabble tiles?

If you don't want to use a bail how do you make a small hole so a chain can slide through?? What is the name of the tool please.

I want them to look like this;

Thanks,
I have been using bails but they are small and many of the ball chains I bought don't fit through them. I thought I might try the drill and see if I like it.

Yes, a hand drill with a very tiny bit works well. You can also purchase the bails in 2 sizes - small and large. Maybe the ones you have are small and the large one would fit your ball chains?

I get my bails from www.maplecitystainedglass.com.
