Can you drill through solid glass with the common drill bit?

I was asked to drill through a block of solid glass but I heard you need a special bit, if so what kind of bit do I need?

no not really and you need a glass drilling spade bit -- and always helps to have some cutting fluid and a adjustable speed drill ..

depends on what kind of bit you use. any drill should be able to make it though. but make sure to put tape around the spot you want to drill

A diamond impregnated bit at slow speed will do the job.

you'll need to keep liquids on the glass while drilling and use a very thin diamond drill bit.
