    Craftics Plas-Drill Bits - Our drill bits for plastic are specially made to produce clean, chip-free holes in acrylic and other plastics. Most commercial drill bits are sharpened to cut into wood or metal, acrylic drill bits are sharpened to scrape the acrylic away. Excellent for hand drills. 90° point, 0° rake.
    Available in 1/8" to 1/2" Diameters

    Note: Acrylic/Plexiglass requires special tools for drilling. Back the acrylic with soft wood, clamp the sheet, or hold it firmly. Use the highest drill speed available, up to 3000 rpm. When drilling holes 3/8"or larger, slower drill speed (1000-2000 rpm) will improve the quality. Do not force feed, let the drill bit do the work. If you are drilling more than one sheet at a time slowly feed the drill bit as drill point penetrates second surface. Awlays drill 1/16" oversize holes. Holes should be located to provide at least a 1/4" solid material from edge of hole to edge of sheet. Use round-head screws. Tighten screws snugly and back off 1/4 turn to provide freedom of movement for expansion or contraction of the acrylic.
