    You do not get those exact sizes in glass drills.
    What I usually do. I buy a 25 or 40mm drill, & drill the hole like you normally would, & then use the bit to "ream" out the hole to the size i want.
    It only takes a minute to ream it out & works great!
    The easiest way to do this, is to completely submerge the glass pane in water (10mm above glass is good enough) & then place a piece of wood underneath the location of the hole. This will help prevent the hole from chipping & will make the reaming easier.
    You can buy the 25 & 40mm bits at any hardware store for about R200 each...
