Drilling stone beads


#1

Cynthia,

There is one other very reliable method for drilling stone
beads, drop me E-mail and let me give you a quote for drilling
them! http://www.shore.net/~lanelap/ Or for cut stones or any
other lapidary services (other than faceting) that I might be
able to provide for you. Thom Thom

Cynthia, perhaps you weren’t lubricating the stone. Usually water
is good enough, but keep more flowing while you’re cutting. If it
still isn’t working, send another posting. Charlie

Another thing about diamond drills and core drills, DON’T push
much pressure on them when drilling, you deplete the diamond
quickly that way and then it won’t drill anymore. Keep it
lubricated at all time with water…DAve
