Keeping Diamond Hole Saws Cool and On Target

How to Use Diamond Hole Saw

In this post, we will try to give you some basic DIY information on how to use diamond drill bits and How to Use Diamond Hole Saws. Generally speaking, diamond drill bits – diamond hole saws are used on brittle materials such as ceramics, porcelain, glass, granite, marble, quartz, tiles, etc. To see our selection of diamond drill bits please visit our store.

The main idea behind this is the grinding action. Diamond abrasive particles adhered to the rim of the diamond hole saw grinds away the material in a circle and a hole is formed by removing a core plug.

Removal of a core plug of quartz

Since the diamond abrasive particles adhere to a metallic bond, increased temperature will cause the bond to break and the diamond hole saw rim will have no grinding action left.

That’s why the use of water for cooling the tool is important. Here are ways to keep the tool to prevent overheating:
