Some additional thoughts

The tap drill index will show three different size twist drills for the hole you will be tapping.

Use the smallest size drill for several reasons:

1) Smaller hole is less intrusive in the strength of the frame.

2) Screw will remain in place better in a smaller hole.

3) Repair will be less detectable with a smaller hole.
