Brands and colors vary

Diamond Drill Bits

2mm Diamond Twist Drills
These twist drills are coated in diamonds for drilling glass, ceramic, rocks, etc.

$9.00 ea.

Blunt Tip Diamond Coated Glass Drill Bit (GlaStar)

Y
ou can't beat a diamond coated drill bit for drilling glass, rocks or ceramics. Different than our Diamond Core Drill Bits, these can be used in any hand-held rotary tool. High quality will last for a long time.

  • For use in any portable drill or rotary tool (Dremel and flex shaft OK)

  • Use water as a coolant

  • Simple to use (directions on package)

$27.00 (ea.)


Note how far up the shaft the diamonds go.

What's the difference between our Diamond Core and Blunt Tip Diamond Drill Bits?
  • Blunt Tip can be used in hand-held rotary tool, Core must be used in a drill press *
  • Holes are easier to get round and accurate when drilled in drill press (core)
  • Drilling is faster on drill press (core)
  • Core bits grind away a cylinder of glass, while Blunt Tip bits grind away glass until the hole is formed
  • Both types are coated with genuine diamonds


They come 2 in a package

1/4" Shank
1/8" Hole

Check out our article on which bit to use and how in The Muse

 

Diamond Core Drill Bits (1/8") (Aanraku)

If you are making projects that require holes in glass, rocks or ceramic, you'll need our 1/8" Diamond Core Drill Bits. They work marvelously with our Glass Bevels or with stained glass. Use water as a coolant.
For use in a drill press.*

A great value!
$15.00 (2)

Glass Cutter Oil
Until recently, I'd been using kerosene in my glass cutter. The problem was that it was giving me a huge headache! A much better alternative is non-toxic Glass Cutter Oil. It cleans up easily with dishwashing soap or alcohol and is virtually odor free. Your head, your pets and your children will thank you for using it. 8 oz.

$7.50

Silver Sharpie Marker
You can't beat a Sharpie for marking glass when cutting or grinding, but what if the glass is a dark color? Enter Silver Metallic Sharpies! Great for marking glass, wood or any other dark surface. Also great for writing on dark cardstock!
