Rated 5 out of 5Â by CCisMe Great little tool
I'm a "handy-woman" doing some updates to my shower which had cracked and broken tiles around the fixtures. In less than 15 minutes, I had all 3 new tiles cut and ready to install. I have regular 4x4 ceramic glazed bath tile.
This hole saw didn't need a pilot-drill in the center thanks to the shape of the water reservoir which helps keep your drill steady. It comes with 6 pieces of mounting tape, and extras were available at HD if I had needed them. I dried off the saw and the reservoir in between tiles so absolutely no problems with getting the reservoir to stick in place with new mounting tape on each tile. Slow drilling with minimal pressure and I was through each tile in about 2 minutes.
I did wonder what to place the tile on when cutting, so I put a piece of packing foam (about 1 inch thick) on top of a board on my work table. I think it protected the saw when it cut through the tile and might make it last a little longer, plus it helped absorb the water that comes out of the bottom when the hole is made. Also, I used a fastener remover (made for removing plastic fasteners in cars - like on doors or upholstery) to gently loosen the grip of the mounting tape. You could use any tool, but be careful not to scratch your tile.
I won't regret this investment.

I needed to enlarge the center hole in a three hole porcelain sink in order to accommodate a new fixture. This worked perfectly! I used a piece of plastic glued into place underneath the existing hole to keep the water bath in place; I also had to use a bit of silicone to seal up leaking area around plastic, as the base of my sink was not perfectly flat.
Frankly, I looked everywhere for a solution to enlarge the existing hole. Suggestions ranged from using a rotary tool to file out the extra space needed (too time consuming) to replacing the sink, as it "couldn't be done without cracking the porcelain."
Other than the minor modifications I had to make to keep the water in the bath, this was a quick and easy fix!

I first bought a ceramic wall tile bit for my Rotozip that immediately burned up when I attempted to make a hole for the shower head pipe. I went back to the store and found this product. I followed the simple instructions and literally within seconds I had a hole cut in my piece of wall tile!

It was so easy to make the holes on the tile, and make perfect circles.

Water reservoir makes hole drilling easy. Be better if I could buy more adhesive rounds
