Hi

I want to make some pendant using the quarter sized glass pebbles. I want to drill a fine hole to run the wire through. Which drill bit do you recommend? I tried 7134 at 25K rpm and also bit 7105 at 30K rpm to create a notch but did not get desired results. Not sure if using right bit and speed...pls advise

thanks

****o RK:



This is Beth from Dremel. The bits that you are using (the "Diamond Wheel Points") are used to "etch or engrave" on glass and other materials... they are NOT used to "drill" in glass as you are trying to do. The only thing Dremel makes for drilling in glass are our two bits, 662DR and 663DR. (These are for 1/8" and 1/4" holes only). We do not have a bit that will enable you to do "small" holes in the glass beads.



If you have any further questions, please feel free to call our Dremel Customer Service Department, Monday - Friday, 7:00 am - 6:00 pm, CST. Toll free at: 1-800-437-3635.



Thanks much - Beth, Customer Service

Thanks for this valuable information. But even if we want to do holes in a glass beads then what should we use which will enable me to do holes in the glass beads? Is there is no such way to do the same?

Please guide me through more on this. Thanks in advance.

Hi, again, this is Beth from Dremel Customer Service. I know that there are users that will use our bits for all types of work (glass beads included). It's just something that Dremel won't recommend. A lot of the time it's because of the heat that is created from the drilling process in glass... which means the bit has to be cooled down and again, Dremel NEVER recommends water in cooling this process down. I'm sorry that I don't have a better answer for you. Again, if you have any further questions, always feel free to contact our Dremel Customer Service Department, toll free at 1-800-437-3635, Mon-Fri, 7:00 am - 6:00 pm, CST. Thanks again for your inquiry!
