there is another way that makes it easier for some. place the lip vertically against the wheel and angle the bit slightly to the right at the shank end. this will help to ensure relief. it will also help break the chip in both wood and metal since the lip has a concave edge. a cheap drill angle check is two nuts held together. this forms a 120 degree angle. close enough to 118 degrees.
