      Good, I'd remove as much as possible, but not get fanatic about it.

        It may be the type of drill you are using.

        All drills will wander somewhat depending on the point geometry.

        You can split the point to help reduce this problem or use a centerdrill to help guide the drill at the start.


        Also using a smaller pilot drill can help also.
