Help help help! Drilling Glass plates
Help! it may be the heat, it may just be me-
I took out a second mortgage, and got the diamond drill bit (just kidding on the mortgage part)-
Here's what I've done, and here's what's happening-
I use the bluep lates I find at Walmart, and they seem to drill ok-
if a plate has any kind of decoration, it shatters, even if I drill it in a bowl of water-
I take a plastic tub,fill it with water, put piece of wood under the plate to catch the bit when it goes through, and drill the hole this way-
so far so good, but will I be able to drill china plates this way?? or will they shatter, also?
so I drill the hole in the copper pipe, put the screw through the holes, and when I tightened up the 'washer' or round thing to hold the screw in place- what IS that thing called?
the glass shattered. The plates that did not immediately shatter, shattered within a half an hour.
Is my screw not long enough? what in the world am I doing wrong?
I'd like some flowers before summer is all used up!!!
