I've discovered jewelry making and am a bit addicted! I have some plastic beads and buttons that I would like to make into earrings, however, I need to drill new holes in them. Looking at all the commercial sites, I [i]think[/i] I need to buy a reamer...but will a manual be good enough or do I need an electronic one? And how do I do it? Some sites talk about lubrication or submerging in water, but I'm confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! Jenny

You could also use... * A Dremel tool set * A Dremel Rotary Work Station * A Vice Grip with non-metallic grips Check Amazon.

Hi Jennie - since you are going to only be working with plastic you should probably be fine using a handheld tool that will help you ream out the holes. If you are going to get a Dremel set - then be careful, because the heat generated by the Dremel could melt your plastic. Go to youtube and type in using dremel to make holes in plastic - there are a ton of videos you can watch that will show you exactly what and how to do what you want to do. :)

You can use a dremel or a regular drill, you need to have a clamp to hold it, too. some clamps have rubber on the grabbing surfaces, or you could cover the surface with electrical tape.


Come to pandahall to get your fashionable jewelry.
