GLASS DRILLS - GENERAL INFORMATION

All of the various glass drills are meant to be used WET. We suggest using a cordless tool, otherwise take extra care to avoid electrical shock while drilling in a wet situation.
Always let the drill do the work Apply gentle pressure and keep the bit as perpendicular to the glass surface as possible. Using a drill press attachment for a cordless drill is a handy set up if you will be doing a number of holes.

MICROMITE DRILLS

Micromite Drills are thin wires coated with diamonds at one end. Best used with a Dremel Tool rather than a standard workshop drill. Be careful to apply very gentle pressure with these thinnest drills to avoid snapping them. Micromite Drills are sold in a pack of three with instructions for proper use
Micromite drills are often used in jewelry work as they produce the smallest holes.

CORE DRILLS BY GRYPHON

Use in any cordless drill with 3/8" or larger chuck. Use of a drill press is NOT required, but in some cases, when drilling thick material or larger holes, you may find a drill press easier to use. Remember to keep drills constantly wet for best results and longer drill life.
