    repurposing idea for insulators

    Several months ago we moved and needed some curtain tie backs in our main bedroom so I decided to use a couple old insulators that I had. I went to the local Ace Hardware and purchased two galvanized pipe nipples and flanges and within a few minutes had the tie backs that you see in the pics. Anyone else have neat ideas for old insulators? I'd love to see or hear them!

    I'm looking at making some sort of light fixture with insulators but have never attempted to drill through glass so I'm going to have to study up on that before I try it.

    You'll likely need a drill-bit designed for ceramic tile & glass, and maybe water to keep it cool as it is quite thick glass and will heat up.
