  1. Thank You for posting your tutorial !
    I have a couple questions... how long does it take to drill through the jar?
    I'm using an 18 volt Makita cordless drill with a 5/16" Hitachi Diamond Mini Hole saw, which the package indicates it will drill through Glass, Marble, Class 5 Porcelain, Granite andSlate.
    Is the drill I'm using powerful enough ? and will the carbide drill bit make a difference ?
    I'm asking because it has taken me at least 45 minutes to drill through the glass jar.
    Thank you in advance for any advice you can share with me.
