I bought a 50mm from builders in Northgate, think they one other size, probably 30mm.

Beware not cheap

We have places here called Bolt Master and Bolt Centre, They usually have all the sizes, or they can order you the ones you want. Maybe you can look for some similar company there by you

Hi We requested that a mega Mica order them for us - sizes are 52mm and 38mm you are looking at a average price of R 400-00 each - they went into the website gave us the sizes and prices and immediately ordered it for us - should be here in two days time - that was yesterday!

Wow, that is expensive, Builders has them for R290.

But then their size is 50mm, maybe that makes a difference

Builders could not help and PG wanted us to bring the glass in they would drill the hole(s) at anything from R55 to R 110 per hole. with the tank we are planning it it would be much better to have your own. Much more cost effective. phone them 2morrow and see other wise I can give their tel number and the contact. only thing is it is in the east rand.

Builder Market (Old Servistar) should stock them, they do here in Durbs anyway, Tell them it looks like a "Hole Saw", these okes are normal not the sharpest tools in the shed, no pun indended!

Was about R100 - R200 if I remember correctly, got myself the 16mm, 25mm and 50mm cutters.

I’ve had experience with all sorts off glass drills being a share holder off an aluminium company, cheap drill bits is just that ...cheap they don’t last. The last one I bought was about two years ago and its still going. All depends on how often you want to drill tanks:p
One more please honey we can put it in the bathroom I promise it will look nice:thumbup:
