ditto to what tom said  ;D, oh, i mean the i am sorry part :'(.  it could be worse, you could have been smoking, though i am not sure if the new refrigerants will convert to phosgene. but hey, on the plus side you could drop it in the lake with a big chain attached and use it for a permanent boat mooring ::)

That's a hard lesson learned. I laughed a little bit at ya....but I know it sucks.

Wish you would have confided in the almighty AHA forum before you drilled. Next time... ;)
