does anyone have the correct tools to do this, or know where I can get them if not? local preferred, but if I need to order it online that's fine too.


thanks!

ebay. http://stores.ebay.com/THK-Diamond-Tools I've bought from them a number of times. Good customer service and prices. You get 4 or 5 holes out of each drill bit, not bad for there low price.
Heres instuctions on how to do it.

was really trying to find them on the island, but thanks for the headsup on where to order them. I think I am going to end up having to just order them either way.

I tried to find them locally here in NY. But they cost at least 10 times more. Not really worth spending that kind of money especially on the tank's I'm usually drilling cost less then the drill bits. I'm sure it's the same way over there.

Good luck

as expensive as stuff is here, I wouldnt doubt it in the least.
I think i might just use a hammer and chisel... :)

Frost has a nice set of bits. Might PM him and see if he is willing to let you borrow the bits you need.
