How do I drill a hole through the center of a cylindrical shaft?

I have a 2 3/8" aluminum round rod. I want to drill a 6mm hole or bore through the rod. The bore must be perfectly centered. I do not have a lathe, but if it's the only way, do they sell them (lathes to work with metal) at Lowe's or Home Depot?

Well aluminum is atleast easier to work with but if perfectly centered is required you would be better off paying a professional but if really close will work, then you got options. First you will need a drill press if not then very carefully with a hand drill, secondly and most important is a vise that will not allow any movement of your stock. always center punch your hole and start small to allow for any error. If your real motivated you can always build a brace for your drill to keep you striaght out of 2x4's.
