Bubbling rock drills?

Posted by watershaper Z 4/5 (My Page) on

I'm looking to get a drill to make bubbling rocks. I know they are expensive and so are the bits, so that's not an issue or a surprise. What is the best option out there? Hand held the only way to go? Do press style drills inhibit size of rock too much?

I'm usually drilling 1.5 - 2" holes for Flex PVC. Stones vary, but usually in the 3 - 6' range size, often up to 2' in drilling depth.

In my search so far, often been told Bosch's hammerdrill is the best option out there.

Thoughts and/or suggestions? Thanks for any input.

Why not make the necessary boulders from Fiberglas?
Drilling thru ?sandstone? or limestone seem to be an overly monumentous task..

If you're looking to sell me artificial stone... move along. I have the only quality artificial manufacturer I've ever seen.

Sorry to earthworm if he's not, but I've gotten a tone of "that won't work.... here's my card", responses on my other posts.

Anyone out there familiar with drilling stone? What's the best machine to buy? Anyone?
