Grinding glass with the notched end of a soft metal tube is
a quicker way of making a hole than power drilling using a
twist drill bit. Rotating the notched end of a metal tube
in contact with the glass lubricated by a mixture of oil and
emery powder, will produce a clean through hole.
Screw or bolt holes in mirrors; holes in glass lamp stands
for wires or fasteners; cuts in glass ornaments; attaching
hinges or fixtures to glass doors; are examples of projects
requiring holes drilled through glass.
