[BKARTS] Drilling for stab binding

Hello all,

I'm in the process of making my 4th-ever handmade book, this one with a stab
binding, and the directions in Shareen LaPlatz's book say to use a drill
press to drill the holes. The pages are ordinary printer paper and ink-jet
vellum, 50/50, bulk about 5/8". The boards are Davy (sp?) board, covered
with paste paper. My husband (owner of the drill press and not as impulsive
as I) wants to know if we need a special kind of drill bit. Does anyone know
if an ordinary drill bit will chew up the paper?

Many thanks for any help,
