    Hole grinding

    Ive heard of many people using a rotary tool (Dremel) to cut holes in their tanks. What type of bit is used for this?

    Thanks

    I used the roto-zip carbide bits. I found by the end of a hole they weren't cutting as well, so I used 1 per hole to be safe. Cheap compared to the new tank. But you want lots of water to keep cool. Too hot and ... crack.
