its actually a very easy thing to do so long as add alot of water and have a considerable amount of patience.. the bugger is keeping the bit steady enough to start the groove, this is done by holding the bit at a 45 degree angel and slowly drilling.. when the groove has been formed position the bit facing straight down using the groove as a guide.. apply alot of water consistently while drilling.. my first few were messy but the fittings hid the mess.. practice on a few pieces of glass first

Thanks for the info les but it will be way cheaper for someone to drill it for me as those bits are expensive. I found someone who does house calls

get the one with the arbour attached (the piece that connects the bit to the drill) this alone will save you R100...
