Tips For Use:
1) Use a TemplateBecause glass hole cutters do not have a mandrel or a pilot hole, it is important to use an adequate template to keep your drill bit centered. If no template Holding the drill firmly drilling should start at an angle of 45 degrees until the hole has started and then the drilling should continue at 90 degrees to the surface. Not adding pressure to the drill just using the weight of the drill.
2) Cooling and Lubrication
When cutting glass it is important to ensure the hole cutter is kept nice and cool to avoid damage to the material being drilled and premature wear of the cutter.
Water is an ideal coolant and a constant supply will need to be applied to the tool during use.
This can be achieved by running water over the hole during use or by creating a well using
Plasticine or putty.
3) Safety Be Careful!
As far as applied pressure, just take it easy and don't force it. Remember, glass edges are sharp, so be careful with the exposed edge of the hole and the remnant when you are done so you do not cut yourself. Eye and hand protection should be worn at all times.WARNING! - DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRILL TEMPERED GLASS IF UNSURE DON'T CUT- it will shatter in 1000 pieces.
Notice: Any time you drill a hole in glass there is a risk of failure. We do not warranty aquariums that are broken from drilling.
