Which bit??

Ok I want to drill my glass tank for a 1 inch bulkhead and need a 1 3/4 inch hole. I look on E-bay for a diamond coated hole saw bit, but cant figure out which one to get or what mm to get. Could any of you pros help me out.

Thanks in advance

For 1 inch bulkhead, use a 45mm bit, it drills around a 1.75" hole. HTH
