Hi there! I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction for what products/additional tools I need to enlarge holes in gemstone beads that range from 2mm-7mm beads, with much smaller holes. I did some very elementary research which is how I found this forum-and I read through the few threads about this topic but they were older and didn’t address the specific issue I’m encountering.
I purchased a Dremel 8050 (cordless) in order to drill the holes safely in water. Again, totally completely new to this so I didn’t know about chucks/collets and not being able to accommodate small diamond drill bits. I purchased a couple of drill bits sets 1 and 2 and an additional Chuck (4486 Keyless) and all are not compatible together. I realize I probably bought nothing I should have to do what I need, but hopefully someone with more knowledge might be able to assist? I’d like to keep the Dremel 8050 if that is going to do the job, but the additional components…I’m not sure about!
Thank you in advance, I apologize if I didn’t search enough and something like this has been discussed at length. I’m super happy to have found this community though, I’m relatively new to jewelry making so I’m just discovering what is out there!
