2. What to Know Before You Begin Drilling Through Glass
Drilling into the glass too quickly can generate heat that will damage the bit. Check the settings on your variable speed drill for its range.
Lubrication is the process or technique of using a lubricant to reduce friction and wear and tear in contact between two surfaces. To lessen the build-up of heat and dust while drilling, experts recommend applying a drop or two of lubricating oil to the glass.
Secure the glass so it doesn’t slide around. Lay a pane on a flat, cushioned surface or rubber pad. Also, always wear your personal protective equipment when drilling.
