Default Making Holes in freeform pieces

I have very little experience with lampworking but really enjoy playing with the torch and all of the beautiful glass. Recently I was attempting to pierce a hole in an off mandrel pendant with the Peters tweezers - and was never really able to get a hole opened up. I was using Bullseye coe 90 glass. The tool just seemed too whimpy for the job - most likely just poor technique on my part. In my search for a solution, I found this tool called Handy Andy designed for this purpose but they are $75. Looking for input on how others make holes and if anyone uses Andy's tool and thinks it's worth $75?

Thanks June
