Disclaimer. Using rotary tools near water has never been, to the best of our knowledge, endorsed by any of the rotary tool manufacturers. If you do choose to drill near water or with attachments under water connected to your drill then you do so at your own risk. Please be aware that mixing electricity and water can be very dangerous.
Helpful note: we mention in the above infographic to use a half round diamond file. A flat shaped, 600 fine grit one will also suffice.
