I drilled from the outside using my milling machine and a large tilt table. The hemispheric wall thickness of .060" made the job smooth and easy. I used an adjustable boring chuck with carbide bits. The holes were machined to tight tolerances so the fit would be tight

The ports were then added and TIG welded from the inside as is standard vacuum welding practice.
