    Needed: Glass Tech.

    I'd like to have a 1.5" hole drilled on the back pane of my tank. But finding a qualified person to do it has become a chore.

    Im in the Ottawa area. Some reffered companies and some phone numbers would really help

    Thanks

    I have had holes drilled at M&T Glass on Cyrville Rd. Also, OSD has drilled quite a few tanks in the Ottawa area.

    Just called M&T, they want $55.00 for a 1.5" hole. That is nuts!

    Could not find OSD is that an acronym?

    If you have a dremel drill it yourself. It sounds alot worse than it is. It's really easy to do. Instead of moving the tank you could do it in Situ. Alot less hasle then trying to move it all over the city.

    Here's a link on how I done mine. Worked like a charm. If you have any questions PM me.

    Umm... I think that OSD (One Salty Dog) recently mentionned that he was no longer drilling tanks due to the costs of short life span of the drilling bit/device. I'm sure he will chime in to confirm that this is so or not.

    I found a guy who will do it for $20.00. But He only has the 1 3/4" bit. Will this be suitable for 1.5" plumbing? I gues it all depends on the adaptor used to plumb the line through the glass. Does any know the diameter of the flange/gasket?
