Nick Jager: Bathila Kankanamge,
I started out with a 1/8" for the pilot hole, 1/4", 5/16", and finally a
1/2". You really don't have to go all the way through with that one. Good
Nick Jager: Have you seen all of the great comments on this video? Take a look.
Margartvl K: Love this idea! Easy idea - Would be great for Christmas or Halloween!
Nick Jager: Mary,
If you use regular Christmas lights you will experience some heat
accumulation. For someone who's planning on running the bottle lights
longer I would recommend LED light strings. This lights give off no heat
and use less energy. The only downside is the cost. LED lights will be a
little more expensive.
Petie Wheatstraw: Wheres your gloves?
Bathila Kankanamge: What are the sizes of the drill bits?
Fitra Fadila: cooollll (y)
Drew Hupke: ur a fag
Leticia Beam: these look great! This video is very informative on cutting holes in glass!
Gary Lee: I thought you said Mick Jagger!
TheRanhughes: My wife loves these!! They look easy to make. Thanks for posting this
video...it was very informative!!!
Laura van Leeuwen: Won't sugar do the exact same thing as the crystal?
Shawna McMillon: Hi Nick, this video is so helpful. Thank you so much for posting this. i am
for sure going to try this when I move into my new place. Where can I get
the crystal film? Joann Fabrics, or michaels maybe?
Nick Jager: Shawna,
I've had really good luck at Joann's. Let us know how things turn out, we
have a DIY Show Off page on our Bottle-Lamp website!
Diego Benitez: es muy bueno tu trabajo, te felicito y gracias por compartir
your job is great, congratulations, and thank you for share
sHest013: Thanks so much for this video!! What number strand of lights do you use?
Antonio Bruno: The video is great, but I would like to point out one safety point for
those trying to do this for the first time. BE SURE TO WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES
AND LEATHER GLOVES!. If the bottle has any unknown flaws, there is a good
chance that during the process there would be a shatter. If this occurs,
severe lacerations, and/or eye damage is a real possibility.
MesserAaron13: You're also supposed to do this under water
kden z: how do i make glass look crystallized?
Geri Kelly: than you!
sHest013: Do you have an email so I can show you this glass.. If that's okay with
swampbilly peek: This was really helpful, thanks!
Jeane Williamson: I love this idea Nick...but how would it be if you used lights with the
white cord when you fill it we with the white filler...then the cord
wouldn't show. Just a thought. Gonna give this a try. Thanks. You know we
make holes in bottlesd using a diamond hole bit which makes the hole...but
you have to do it under r I nning water and it takes a while. I think what
you are doing seems less time consuming and easier.
kmariebox1: Isn't is necessary to be lubricating the bit with water as you're drilling?
Mary H Nunez: Thank you for writing back so quickly. Will definitely try that. Have a
sHest013: Sorry. Yes I meant glass
Chase Christensen: What about when your lights burn out? Haha. Great video, thank you.
Kirsti Randall: What a great idea for 'christmas lights' in a bar!!
Thanks for the tutorial Nick!
Mary H Nunez: Hi Nick! Thank you for your video. We had no issues with drilling the hole,
however on our strand of christmas lights of 25 about 18 are burning out,
and the bottle is very hot after a short period of time being plugged in.
What is the longest these lights should stay plugged in, will the crystal
fill help? Just feels like it's overheated, not sure what I'm doin wrong.
sHest013: Alright...... I tried it and my glad broke :( so what am I doing wrong.. I
took all the steps you showed
Dax Nayyar: Hi, Nick this is an awesome video and i got grt knowledge from this but i
want to know that did you grab the bottle hardly or it was loose @ 2.22
minute..Thanks and sorry for bad English?
Judith Yoma: Help!! I've tried drilling 4 bottles and all of them have shattered. What
am I doing wrong. I am using Bosch glass and tile bits.
Marisol Anthony: Make my bottles lol I'll try this!!! Thanks a lot!
Norma McDonald: Nick, when drilling a hole in the wine bottles, is there at any point, you
use water to keep the bottle cool from cracking?
Tom Blakeley: Thanks Nick your video helped a lot. i had been using only a 1/2 inch bit
and it took forever.
Bonnie Wells: Where to you buy the crystal fill?
sHest013: Yup you've been doing this for awhile lol! I started closer to the bottom
and one after the other, I switched the drill bits out! So I'm trying it
Wendy Thompson: Awesome. I've just started making these and I love the crystal idea. I'm
using diamond tip drill bits because I read they will last longer. How
many bottles do you get out of your tips? I saw those too and wondered if
they would work?
Jack Fitzgerald: Hi Nick, very nice video. I managed to successfully drill a hole. How large
is your largest drill bit? I used a 5/16 inch and it is not large enough
for the lights to go through. Thanks.,
adrianna Berlingerio: Hi. Can you tell me what size drill bits were used and the final hole size
used so that you could fit the lights inside. Thanks
reload26ny: Great video! I've wanted to make some for a few months, just wanted to wait
until after Christmas, when the lights are discounted to about $1-$2. I had
planned to search the web for a filler, now I don't have to. Thanks for
saving me tons of time.
Mick Jäger: Nice work! Check on my Jäger Lamp on facebook and twitter. Keyword search
JagerLamp , all one word.
Tennessee5006: LOL, sounded like he said ( Hi, I'm Mick Jagger) LOL
mike lewis: u should do one with all white lights and instead of that crystal fill use
broken pieces of colored glass ( you can find at craft stores )! i bet it
would look sweet!
Nick Jager: Thanks Mike! The pieces of broken glass would actually be fitting
considering this is a recycle project.
msraider1500: I have tried a few times now to make one of these and I can't get past the
drilling of the hole. I have tried twice now and the bottle has broken both
times. I have watched your video over and over and have done exactly as you
stated.... What am I doing wrong? Does the drill brand and sizes matter? If
so, what size of drill bits do you use and is one brand better than
another? Please help?
dolphin450: Yesterday I drilled 4 bottles outside in the yard. I used the garden hose
to keep the glass dust down. One thing I also did was to wear a glove on
the hand holding the bottle in case the bottle broke. Thank you for the
video I enjoyed it. I was going to make wine bottle lamps of a different
type but might change my thoughts and make this style of lamp. It's much
easier. Thanks for the video.
Lvbites: Where did you find the Vampire bottle? I soooo want one of those. I would
have however, used red lights.
mike lewis: u should do one with all white lights and instead of that crystal fill
use broken pieces of colored glass ( you can find at craft stores )! i bet
it would look sweet!
incavos: Great vid Nick. Thanks!
