Visitors tips Tips for drilling sheet glass or mirrors
When you are wanting to drill sheet glass or mirrors. Mark your spot with a felt tip, then make a small well from putty over the marked spot. Fill this well with a touch of light oil. Drill slowly using a carbide tipped drill bit. The oil keeps the drill bit cool and makes the job that little bit easier. If you are drilling through glazed tiles it helps if you use a masonry nail to score the point of drilling. The bit will not slip off the glazed surface. Finally, if you have drilled a hole through a glazed tile and inserted a raw plug, make sure the plug passes through the tile before you insert the screw. This way the tile will not crack.
