Has anyone milled an Altoid Tin?

I want to make some desiccant containers out of some Altoid tins.

This would involve drilling many small holes in the cover, or milling a honeycomb pattern.

Does anyone have experience drilling or milling holes in an Altoid tin using their Shapeoko?

It would be nice to leverage someone else’s experience.

You will want to sandwich the sheet metal between some pieces of something, like some 1/8" or so thick plywood or plastic. That would keep the sheet metal from fraying and dimpling.
