Customer Questions & Answers

Is this Bosce drill bit able to drill into a 8x8x4 inche. Glass Icescape block?

Asked by: Anonymous
Based upon my experience with this bit...Absolutely Not! Read the other reviews. This bit will not drill through glass, or tile.

Would this be a drill bit I could use to drill through a glass liquor bottle?

I am drilling a hole on the back at the base, to making a lamp from the liquor bottle.
Asked by: Madi
The Glass & Tile Bits can be used for drilling into a glass bottle as long as the glass is untempered. If the glass is tempered (heat treated) the glass becomes very brittle and can shatter. If the glass is tempered, the manufacturer is supposed to etch the glass at each of the four corners. Also, the drill needs to be ran at a low rpm otherwise the glass being drilled can break. A 1/2" bit would need to be run at 250 rpm or less.

Can this bit be used to drill through a Corian (solid surface) backsplash?

Asked by: lala
Thank you for your question. We would recommend a diamond hole saw bit like the HDG12 for drilling into a Corian blacksplash.

1/2 in. Carbide Glass and Tile Bit is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I had to drill 1/2" holes through ceramic tile in my bathroom to install a double shower curtain rod. I'd not used this type of bit before and was looking for a standard masonry bit. However I saw this and liked the point to keep it from wandering. It worked flawlessly. I drilled 4 holes through tile, hardiboard, then drywall. Each were perfect. I drilled at slow speed with mild pressure. I wet the tip periodically with water. This is common sense to me. It keeps things cooled down and acts as a lubricant. This bit performed great. Use as directed with common sense and you'll be very successful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Tile I used this to install a Kohler Hydrorail. The last thing I wanted was for it to wander or chip/crack my bathroom tile. After talking to a HD rep, he recommended this bit. You need to follow the directions and run it slow. It took me about 5 minutes to drill out four holes. The best part about the design is it literally does not wander. It started and stayed directly on my mark then made a clean/crisp hole.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very difficult to use with an extremely short life I have almost nothing good to say about the Bosch GT600 drill bit. It is easy to start a hole with a brand new bit, but very difficult and time consuming to actually drill a complete hole in the side of a normal glass block! For one thing, the bit’s instructions don’t give any guidance about water at all. We had 26 glass blocks to drill for a craft project and went through 3 of these bits during 22 attempts with 4 blocks cracking for us. If the hole completes, the drill becomes VERY difficult to control. We needed a safety board to help catch the chuck (with a 3 / 4" hole in it to provide just enough clearance for the bit and spraying water) to prevent crashing into the glass when the cut finished. We tried using a lot of water, very little, or none. We tried using different drills, one a variable speed 0 – 2500 RPM and the other drill set in low gear ratio with 0 – 1,000 RPM and both had similar results. You could get 1 or 2 good holes out of a bit if you were lucky (taking a little under 2 minutes with a fresh bit), and then it dulled and was very slow at best or shot altogether. Also, the edges of the holes were often fairly uneven and sharp. Based on some videos I found online of similar bits, I think using one of these in a drill press with precise speed control, perfect vertical alignment, plenty of water and a fixed depth stop might work- BUT for some bizarre reason Bosch’s instructions explicitly say NOT to use a drill press! We found that using a hole saw style diamond bit was MUCH easier and faster.
