6mm Drill Bits
These are high quality drill bits, Uk made and not cheap Imports
 ideal for drilling a hole in a cake stand
Suitable for use on glass, ceramics, porcelain etc.

The 6mm drill bit is the correct size to work in conjunction with
 5mm diameter thread uprights.

I have personally have used these on my cake stands for many years and find them durable and long lasting. I have now some cheaper imports, which will not last as long, but given the price, you may prefer this option!
 
Note: I recommend that you purchase both the Tungsten Carbide Metal Spear Head Bit and the Vitrex Diamond Head Drill Bit. Please download my step by step instructions of how to drill a plate.
Vitrex Diamond Head
6mm diameter drill bit - This will last for over 100 plates when used in conjunction with my Faithful Tungsten Carbide Spear Head drill bits - see my free download and tips. Use these Diamond Heads to finalise your hole to get a perfect finish without chips.
Price: £10.00
Faithfull Tungsten Carbide Metal Spear Head
6mm diameter drill bit - This will do the hard work before you use the more expensive diamond head to finalise your perfect hole - This will last for over 50 plates - see my free download and tips
Price: £6.50
1 x Diamond Head + 1 x Spear Head 6mm Drill Bit
Ideal Starter Pack - Chinese Imports - Price Includes UK Postage. These will not last as long as my Vitrex Diamond Head + my Faithfull Spear Head - However, they are much cheaper and will last for about 20 plates each or a bit longer if you drill correctly and always wet your drill bit! See my free pdf download 'How to Drill a Plate'. I always use the Spear Head drill bit to start my plates and finalise with the Diamond Head. I have seen other websites saying that these last as long as my more expensive English ones! I drill plates every day and I can tell you that they don't. However, given the price comparison, you may prefer to use these cheaper ones and then replace them with a fresh drill bit. A sharp drill bill will not cause any chipping (if you follow my methods). You know a drill bit has come to the end of its life when chipping occurs. Soft Ironstone plates should cut through within one minute. Harder Fine Bone China should cut through within five minutes. When you are spending longer than this and getting chips - it is time to refresh your drill bit!

Diamond Head 6mm Drill Bits x 5
These are Chinese imports ~ They will not last as long as the English Vitrex but I have tried them out and they work well on drilling holes into plates to make a cake stand. The price is for 5 including postage. Some websites claim that these last as long as a good quality Vitrex Diamond Head - sorry I strongly disagree, especially when you are drilling Fine Bone China. They will do about 20 plates each from my experience. I drill cake plates every day!
Price: £12.00
Spear Head Tungsten Carbide 6mm Drill Bits x 5
These are Chinese imports ~ They will not last as long as the English Faithfull but I have tried them out and they work well on drilling holes into plates to make a cake stand. The price is for 5 including postage. Again, some websites claim that these will last as long as the Faithfull Tungsten Carbide and I strongly disagree. They will last for about 20 plates each to give good, clean holes. Once a drill bit becomes dull - it will start to chip your plate, especially on hard fine, bone china.
