I use one as well, and have never needed a drill. I can just about get a working bubble count using the primary valve. Use the needle valve for fine tuning.
Also, something they don't mention, check the bubble flow every hour for the first few hours and every day or so. Once you initially open the main valve, you build up pressure before the needle valve. This creates a misleading flow rate when you open the needle valve and see steady bubbles. When the between the main valve and needle valve equalize, the flow drops considerably and remain at the reduced rate. Just make sure to check it several times each time you completely shut of the main valve.
