A little compressed air in the case vent will help prevent shavings from getting in your motor while drilling or tapping.

Dip the tap and drill bit in a thick grease. Most of the shavings will stick to the grease.Drill at a slower speed so not to sling the grease. Or you can have someone hold a shop vac hose next to where you are drilling as well.
