Can i cut or drill a hole in laminated and tempered glass?

Laminated glass and tempered glass are not necessarily the same thing. Tempered glass cannot be drilled, but untempered laminated glass could (probably) be drilled. Holes in tempered glass are drilled before tempering.

Read on! You'll use these same techniques to drill glass, glass block, tile, stone, granite, wine bottles, sea glass and marble. # # Use diamond bits to drill your glass, not carbide bits. # Use diamond hole saws to drill holes 1/4" and larger or to drill holes in thick glass like glass block or wine bottles. # Use plenty of lubrication/coolant to keep your drill tip cool and the hole clean. # Use less pressure! Let your drill bit drill at it's own pace. # Start diamond hole saws at 600-900 RPM. # Start diamond drill bits at 2500-5000 RPM. If you use these 6 secrets, drilling glass and tile is quick and easy. The FAQs below should answer any other questions you might have. * http://www.drillglass.com/hehiforbe.html

How do you cut or drill through a fixed wall mirror to mount a light fixture?
i think you should drill through the wall slowly The question was about drilling an hole in a mirror. I think the correct way to do this is to mark out where the hole is required, get some putty and form a cupped mound below, fill with varsol or white spirit, and drill the hole slowly with a special glass drill bit. You must keep the bit lubricated with the liquid to dissipate heat and prevent the mirror from cracking.
