    The instructions call for a 63mm glass hole saw, although their install video on Youtube claims a 65mm would work as well. If you have one to loan out, I'd love to hear from you. If not I'll probably order it on Monday 9/17 from Synergy.

    Thanks

    Look at amazon! You will find one cheep and it’ll work well for your application.

    I have a 60mm from when I installed synergy's ghost overflow. Have they changed the sizes?

    Why not just use a 2.5" hole saw? You can get those locally.

    Yeah must be. They are up to 63mm. Thanks for checking for me though!

    That would work, diamond glass cutting hole saw? Where can I get that locally?

    I have a 45mm drill bit that I've used to drill 3 holes with...I was hoping to borrow this one since I'm pretty sure it's going to drill 2 holes in it's lifetime and God knows I have enough single use tools lying around in my way.

    10 bucks on amazon... free shipping. Lowe’s doesn’t have diamond bit, only carbide. They work for tile but glass? The ones from amazon have been good to me. I just don’t have one large enough for you.

    When I needed some holes drilled once, the glass shop did it for me. I think $10/hole.
    The whole "not responsible for breaking it" waiver applies though.

    I just went ahead and Amazon'ed it, they also had a gate valve that I needed. Thanks all for helping!
