Product Description

Gryphon's core drill bits for glass artists feature the same high quality coating as their well-respected grinder bits. Diamond bits quickly and easily remove a complete circle in glass. Core bits work with a standard electric drill and only need water as a lubricant.

Pack includes 3 sizes: 4mm, 6mm, and 18mm.  These sizes are approximately equal to 1/8", 1/4", and 3/4". Perfect for projects from jewelry and wind chimes to table fountains and lamps.

Shown in additional images are examples of projects that can be created using core drill bits. Fused pendant uses 1/8" core drill bit for a perfect hole for stringing. Water lily table fountain by artist Teresa Batten was created with fused flower molds and assembled using a core drill bit to accommodate the fountain and water flow. Fused glass pendant lamps by artist Val Oswalt. Fused glass sink by artists Val Oswalt and Roy Kapp was created using a core drill bit to create the hole to accommodate plumbing.

Pros : This core drill bit value pack offers a great choice for anyone drilling holes in fused glass art quite often. Various sizes allow for different ribbons etc. to be used to hang projects plus the bits work way better than a solid diamond bit I was using prior to finding these.
Cons : None found
Other Thoughts : An amazing option for a glass artist on a budget

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service.

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
