Starrett Diamond Core Drill


Starrett diamond grit hole saws are excellent tools for drilling holes in a wide range of hard and brittle materials, including glass, marble, tile, granite, and calcium silicate board. The diamond coating on these hole saws provides superior performance and longer tool life. The key points highlighting the suitability and benefits of Starrett diamond grit hole saws:

Versatile Applications: Starrett diamond grit hole saws are versatile tools suitable for various materials, making them valuable for both professional and DIY use.

Clean and Accurate Holes: These Starrett diamond grit hole saws are known for their ability to produce clean and accurate holes in materials like glass, tile, and ceramic. The diamond grit ensures precision and reduces chipping or splintering.

Extended Tool Life: The diamond-coated edge of these hole saws significantly extends their lifespan compared to conventional hole saws. This longevity makes them cost-effective and minimizes the need for frequent replacements.

Suitability for Hard Materials: The diamond-coated hole saws are especially well-suited for hard materials like granite and glass fiber cement boards, where conventional tools may not perform as effectively.

Starrett diamond grit hole saws offer an effective cutting action on non-metallic materials, as well as difficult-to-cut materials. They are particularly well-suited for applications where other tools may struggle.

These hole saws are designed for use with electric drills. However, please note that the electric drill is not included with the hole saws.

Starrett diamond grit hole saws are sometimes referred to as diamond drill bits, diamond core drill bits, diamond grit hole saws, or glass/tile drills. This is because they are versatile tools used for drilling holes in various materials, including glass, ceramic, porcelain, tile, limestone, slate, marble, granite, and more.

Q: How do you use a diamond pad?

A diamond hand pad is a handheld abrasive tool with a flexible surface coated with diamond particles. It is used for grinding, smoothing, and polishing various materials, including stone, concrete, glass, and metal.

Q: How do I choose the right grit size for my project?

Select the grit size based on the initial condition of your workpiece and the desired level of surface finish. Coarse grits are suitable for rough grinding, while finer grits are used for smoothing and polishing.

Q: What safety precautions should I take when using diamond hand pads?

Wear safety goggles, a dust mask, and gloves to protect yourself from dust and debris. Additionally, work in a well-ventilated area or wear a respirator if working with fine dust particles.

Q: How do I maintain and clean my diamond hand pad?

After use, rinse the diamond hand pad with clean water to remove debris and residues. Gently pat it dry or allow it to air dry. Proper maintenance can prolong the pad's lifespan.

Q: What are some common applications for diamond hand pads?

Wear safety goggles, a dust mask, and gloves to protect yourself from dust and debris. Additionally, work in a well-ventilated area or wear a respirator if working with fine dust particles.

Q: What are the common grit sizes for diamond hand pads?

Diamond hand pads come in a range of grit sizes, from coarse (e.g., 50 grit) to fine (e.g., 3000 grit). The choice of grit depends on the specific task, with coarser grits used for material removal and finer grits for polishing.

Q: Do I need to use water or lubricant with a diamond hand pad?

Yes, using water or a specific lubricant is often necessary. It helps keep the surface cool, prevents overheating, and improves the effectiveness of the diamond particles in grinding and polishing. Some materials require dry grinding, so it's essential to check the manufacturer's recommendations.

Q: Can I use a diamond hand pad for dry grinding and wet grinding?

The suitability of a diamond hand pad for dry or wet grinding depends on the material and the pad itself. Some diamond hand pads are designed for wet use, while others are suitable for dry grinding. Check the manufacturer's specifications for guidance.

Q: Can diamond hand pads be used on curved or irregular surfaces?

Yes, diamond hand pads are versatile and can be used on flat, curved, or irregular surfaces. Their flexibility allows for contouring and shaping of various workpieces.

Q: Can I achieve a high-polish finish with a diamond hand pad?

Yes, with the right technique and progression through finer grits, you can achieve a high-polish finish on various materials using diamond hand pads. The finest grits are typically used for the polishing stage.
