Drilling glass

Postby Steven mc » Tue Jan 22, 2013 3:32 pm

Hi guys,
I'm having night mares thinking about having to drill holes in 2 tanks in the next few days,
I've never done it before or even seen it done apart from youtube, I need to drill 4 holes in
2 tanks for externals to fit as the braces on the tanks go right around the edge.
Any advice in what to do and not to do?

I have seen and heard from the horses mouth what a gamble this is. Is there not a glass smith you can get to come round and do it for you?

Hi guys,
All tanks now drilled, it was easy I thought, It was a bit scary to start with
but it went smoothly, only had to do 4 holes
