I'd like to drill wholes in some glass tiles. Any suggestions on how and what supplies or tools I'll need? I'd greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks

Dremel
by: Greg Krynen

There are all kinds of bits out there for doing just this chore. Some simple bits made for glass and tile have a bit of carbide on the end to drill through the hard surface. Other bits use diamond and are readily available at craft stores and hardware stores.

I use diamond bits and a Dremel tool to drill hole in glass. Some tips include, go slow, avoid letting the bit bounce as it will chip and crack the glass. WEAR SAFETY GLASSES! Keep the bit cool, I like to work with glass under a bit of water in a slim container like a small shallow baking pan (cookie pan)
