Drilling Small Holes in Jewelry and Ornaments


how to drill small holes in glass for jewelry and ornaments


Overview

These directions apply to using our 2.1 mm Drill Bits (7239) to produce high-quality hole with minimal blow-outs (chipping out the back side) in small-scale pieces of fired or unfired sheet glass.

These drill bits feature a diamond-abrasive coating applied to a fluted core. As the edges wear away, fresh diamonds are exposed, extending the effective lifespan of the bit.
