RE: best way to....
Success - eventually

first off - screw the wire cutters / metal shears for cutting into the sheet... some decent scissors did the job much easier and better

in the end i went for a regular drill bit - and destroyed the first negative plate as it snagged and ripped it apart (i had secured it to a bit of wood with nails)

the second i went really slowly and although it kept snagging i got a working result although not the neatest hole.

bought 2 more bits of 36x18mm fine silver and had a chat to a guy a few doors down who has not 1 but 2 tool sheds (he must be good!)

he said i had to back off a drill bit so it grinds rather than cuts - and promptly searched through his 100s of drill bits for one the right size (there were jars full) - fired up a bench grinder and ground the cutting edge of the bit the other way.

this did a perfect hole with virtually no snagging.
