Default need help regarding a home made hookah

the problem is that i have to find a way to get the hose inside the glass base.
i have nothing hot enough to melt the glass, and i tried drilling a glass bottle while running it under cold water and it shattered so that's out of the question.

any suggestions?

ill post up some pics later

Its cool to make your own hookahs but imo it would be a hole lot easier to buy a fairly nice $45 hookah and smoke now instead of having to wait till you make your own. with that being said some pics would definitely help.

I dont know if heating glass is the safest thing to be doing if you dont know what you are doing.

You need a glass drilling bit. Glass is not something to play around with along with heat. Unless it is the right kind of glass some will just crack and shatter. This can be dangerous. Get the right drill bit and some JB weld or the like.

I agree with kalutika.....They have drill bits specific for glass...at Home Depot or OSH.

Bear in mind they are a bit pricy. A good size bit is going to run you like 12+ dollars.

try getting a plastic base. You can get some pretty nice looking plastic vases at thrift stores, plus they are very easy to drill through.

Like weezle said, plastic is a easier, safer alternative for glass! I suggest you go for that instead. Glass can cut you . you wouldn't need to spend excess money buying a drillbit either just to drill one hole in some glass. I hope this goes well for you, no matter the path you decide to take
