    Anyone know if you can get 1.5mm diamond tipped drill bits for drilling shell holes??

    Hey all,

    Can anyone tell me where I can find small 1.5mm diamond tipped drill bits for drilling holes in shells please??

    Preferably Australia since that is where I live or via ebay.

    I am hoping to find decent ones that don't cost a fortune but that will need to fit my friends drill of which I have to find out what the brand is yet as I think it is just a normal everyday drill. Just wanted to ask

    Thanks all!

    Silverlilly: Dremel makes bits for etching glass. I have found out they work just as good for making holes in shells which is softer than glass. So in my opinion the glass etching dremel bits will work just as easy. A little dusty while doing it but works really well.

    Could maybe a drop of water help keeping the dust under control and cool the drill bit at the same time? I have got a tile cutter with a diamond blade, which uses water, and that works really well. Never tried it on a Dremel bit, though.
