Hi, I'm Jason with Today we're polishing a rock charm for a necklace. I've already talked about the drilling and keeping it wet, and where to place the hole. And now for the bit in the dremel. You have to make sure you get a drill bit that was made for the dremel. These are either silica carbide or diamond. It's not the regular drill bit. A regular drill bit will snap right in half. Sometimes these actually will, too. So, with this, before we start, we'll just put it in the water, turning the dremel on low. Placing it down on the flattest surface and try to drill straight through, but don't, we're not drilling any more than about ten seconds. So. OK, as you can see I'm going in and out, and in and out, and all the dust where, with the bit is wet, it just keeps on taking it right out. Now, we don't have to just drill right through this one side. If we do that it's going to come out the back, over here. We're going to drill in the other side, and make the holes match in the middle.
