Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dale I thought this was for Porcelan Tile? I ended up breaking the tile and had to pay the Tile Man to come back and put in another tile for $75
I started at an angle as directions said and also applied water. Did not have a good expierence with this.

I used this bit to drill 8 holes into bathroom porcelain tile in orderto mount new kohler fixtures. I followed directions and started at 45 degree angle and then go to 90 degrees once you have a small opening. It was hard but the bit did its job and drove through fairly quickly. I only gave 4 stars, because I am not sure how many more holes it will be able to drive.

This bit costs 3X more than a cheaper bit but even using coolant it drilled only two holes in tile. A cheap bit drills two holes also. Don't believe the package that says 10times stronger, it's not.

Needed to install a shower door over porcelain tile. The tile wasn't the highest quality. It was brittle and would crack easily. So needless to say , I was nervous about drilling holes in the tile for the shower door hinges.
Bought this mini hole saw and was very skeptical.
But, to my surprise, it worked very well. Drilled 8 holes without a problem.
I was very happy with it.

I used the tool to cut glass and just had to take it slow with a little water. Worked great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by handyguy Excellent hole cutter
Drills through ceramic tile over cement backer board beautifully. I drilled a dozen holes for shower accessories easily. This cost more than the QEP or other bits, but I trust Milwaukee. My only gripe is that you have to stop and clean the center hole often. Dipping it frequently in water keeps the bit cooler but seems to make it clog up. So, keep a finishing nail handy to clean it.

cut a total of 6 holes in a ceramic tile to mount a toilet flange used spray bottle to keep bit wet
first 5 holes went well perfect 1/4 inch holes with some little chips on edges of holes by the 6 hole I could tell the bit was not cutting as well , was able to do the job but if you have more than 6 holes you better buy 2

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jason Works well on porcelain tile!
Unlike half of my tool box, this is NOT a bit that I just picked up because I thought I might need it one day. Instead, I burned out a few standard bits, then I dulled some carbide bits. Finally, I got online and did my research! If you want to bore through porcelain tile or glass, get one of these Milwaukee bits! Take your time, and have a plan. I was adding a shower curtain rod, and I could luckily hide the gash I made for the first hole while I was learning. Second hole went so much better. Painters tape kept the bit from walking, and I started with the bit at a steep angle. Light pressure, and only increase the angle as the bit bites the tile. When the bit starts spitting out mud, I flushed it with a couple of sprays of water. In just a few minutes I had a perfect hole ready for a wall anchor!
