Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pappysdad Easy tile drilling!
I needed three neat holes in tiles on a shower wall to accommodate the shower head and hot/cold water valve handles. After a lot of research, I took a chance on this product. Using the hole saw mounted on my drill press and following the instructions about attaching the water container to the tile, I gently tapped the ceramic tile with the bit and it sliced cleanly through the material in a matter of seconds. If you need clean cuts quickly and the size hole is acceptable, I recommend this hole saw, not only for performance, but for reasonable price as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LosRubios Perfect solution for quickly and easily drilling a hole in tile for a fireplace gas shutoff valve access.
I needed to drill a hole through the tile on our fireplace hearth for access to the gas shut off valve and this tile saw did the job easily and quickly. The result was a perfect hole in exactly the right place in about 5 minutes of work and a no too much time spent on one of the more difficult parts of the hearth/fireplace tiling project.
The process for using the hole saw is very simple. Mark where you want the hold drilled, press on one of the double sided self-adhesive stickers, fit the alignment block, squirt some water into the alignment block to keep the hole saw lubricated and drill away. We added a couple more squirts of water while cutting to make sure the saw was still well cooled/lubricated and the hole was through the tile in about 5 minutes using our 12v cordless drill on its slow speed setting (to avoid getting the tile sa too hot).
In order to avoid the saw drilling at a slight angle through the tile from the torque of the drill, we reversed the drill direction mid way through to ensure a straight cut - since the saw is carbide tipped, it will cut in either direction.
Having used the smaller QEP diamond tile saws to drill holes in our bathroom tile for handles and towel rail screws, I really found the blue plastic alignment block to be very helpful as you no longer need to put the saw in at an angle to get it to bite into the tile.
This saw is a life saver and well worth the price as my other option was to drill a smaller hole in the tile and manually cut out the larger hole with a hand saw with a tile blade, and this would have taken forever.

I purchased a one hole porcelain sink from Ikea but really wanted a faucet with hot and cold knobs, therefor I needed a 3 hole pattern sink. Ikea btw does not sell 3 hole bathroom sinks...
Anyway, this hole saw was AWESOME! one of the best HD purchases in a long time. I rarely review items, but this deserved a shout out... Great Product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jim cut thru the floor tile quick and accurate. I had tried the cheap circle cutter from Harbor Freight and destroyed it after a labor intensive effort without success.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skiman Actually worked!
I was skeptical this would work, and pleasantly surprised on how easy it was and how nicely it cut.
Follow directions and you will have a great hole with nice edges.
