Drill Bits from Cooksongold

A drill is the most accurate way of creating rivets for metal jewellery, and with one of our drills you’ll get the rivet hole in the place you wish. Use your drill to make rivet holes for a chic cuff, beautiful bracelet or a fashionable statement necklace. You can drill just about any stone you can find – including beach stones – but we recommend you begin with sedimentary rocks such as sandstone, mud-stone or limestone. A helpful drilling tip when drilling glass or shell is to wear safety glasses and work on your item whilst it’s sunk into water to keep it cool. For long shank drill bits try our Hss Shank Drill 1.0mm, Hss Shank Drill 0.80mm or our Hss Shank Drill 0.50mm – all made from high speed steel and by Busch, the efficient, innovative and century-old company that manufacture rotary precision instruments and tools worldwide.
