Drill a small hole 1/8 to 1/4 inch in the medal of the knockouts and and use a taperd punch., put it in the hole and hit it with a hammer.
Be gentle and good luck.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO KNOCK OUT THE HOLES!:) use a hole saw and a drill at slower speed than faster AND THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT,.. the hole saw has a bit in the center which is longer than the rest of the bit. when the center bit has penetrated the granite...STOP! and finish the the hole from the other side. hope this helps and good luck:)

I would think it is worht a try. use some epoxy for granite and also glue something to the underside of it to beef it up, plus it will help hold the break togather with a clamp or two.

I have a black enamal cast iron jacuzzi kitchem sink with 4 holes for the faucet predrilled..the holes are 3" in dia. where can I find a faucet for this sink?

If you have a 3" hole I would definately say that is a special order faucet, But if 3" is a typo you can get what are called "cockhole covers" to cover the hole you're not using. What i usually do is, find a faucet that will use the 3 holes and install a soap dispenser, filtered water spigot, or a instant hot water spigot to fill the fourth hole.
If 3" is not a typo you might try to contact a granite countertop co. or call Jacuzzi and install a larger plate that will cover large holes and have new (smaller) holes drilled for a standard faucet

hope this helps

Drilling a composit sink for a 4 hole faucet

If is real granite you will need diamond tipped coring bits, if it is a composite then quality hole saws and/or drills will work. Slow and cold is the rule here, do not force the tool and you should be fine.
