1. How do I get more adhesive pads? Helena Home Depot did not have them. 2. Why do you not supply 3 or 4 dozen pads with the bit?

5/16 in. Diamond Hole Saw is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from My task was to install 1 shower rod, 1 towel bar, and 1 toilet paper holder, all on very hard 1/4... My task was to install 1 shower rod, 1 towel bar, and 1 toilet paper holder, all on very hard 1/4" thick porcelain tile. That required a total of 10 holes. I actually drilled 13 holes due to "operator error" but I won't elaborate on that story! I ended up buying two 5/16" QEP diamond hole saw kits and, finally, a Milwaukee drill bit to complete the task. On the plus side, the plastic guide taped to walls is indispensable. Drill bits will "skate" all over the wall without this guide or another like it. On the negative side, the water cooling system is a cruel joke. Water dissipates through the plastic container in about 30 seconds, but it takes at least 30 MINUTES to drill through 1/4" porcelain tile. My advice is to tape the bottom plastic guide to the wall and drill long enough to get a hole started. Remove the bit periodically and dip it in bowl of water to cool. After the hole has been started you can remove the guide and complete the hole without the guide. Use a spray bottle of water to cool the bit and remove debris. If you remove the guide carefully you can perhaps use the tape twice. Other reviewers have complained that the package doesn't have enough two-sided tape strips. However, when you run out of tape strips it is probably way past time to replace the bit anyway. I found that these bits would last for about 5 holes before they became completely useless. My advice is to buy this kit for the guide alone and use the included bit until it wears out. Then buy a better quality bit to complete your work.

It does not have a pilot drill, so you must use the base to get the bit started. I needed to over drill a hole and anything with a pilot would not work. For new holes, I would go with a pilot drill version just because the bit stays together. This unit consists of 2 important pieces (drill and guide) and one convenient disposable piece (a sticker that helps keep the guide from moving). Eventually I will run out of stickers and probably lose the guide. I only need this type of tool once every 5 years...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure We bought the bit to drill holes in ceramic bath tile to attach shower curtain rod but they kept breaking. Could be an issue with our drill but we have yet to find the proper bit. Doing 50 rooms so it's been a pain.
