What size drill bits do you guys use (in fractions of an inch)
to drill holes in already baked beads? I think I am going to try this,
because I, too, am sick of poking a hole before baking that distorts or
ruins my bead. But I do need to know what size drill bit should be
used to, for instance, drill a hole big enough to fit your basic 2mm
round leather cord through? I know It has to be at ***y bit bigger
than 2mm, but that's about it...What has been your guys experiences?
Also, wouldn't it be cool to start a new thread, one that is
specifically for everyone's benefit?? A thread about tools (bought or
homemade) that we use with our various projects to make things easier,
or look better, etc.?? We can all contribute a little and gain a lot
from each other's specific experiences! Let me start:
I have a small drill that I got from a "Nail Supply" store. It
is generally used to drill ring holes in acrylic nails, but I use it to
drill tiny holes in beads that I mean to use with Tiger Tail. I paid
$5.00 for it, and I suppose you could also just get a small drill bit
of the same size for cheaper, but this is the difference: It has a
larger well-textured handle for better gripping, and you can unscrew
part of the handle and then***it back over the drill, protecting it
from getting bent or broken...Just my contribution...
P.s. - Theresa Egan, sorry I have not mailed those cane slices yet,
fmaily and realtionship probs have been occupying a lot of my time...I
will try to get those to you soon, K?
