Questions & Answers

Do I need to use a hammer drill for this bit to work properly?

I am installing a pool cover which requires that I drill 20 holes 3/4 inch wide and 2 inches deep.
Asked by: IsItHammerTime
Depends on what you are drilling. If it's masonry or concrete, then yes, you will want a hammer drill.

What size chuck is required?

What size chuck is required?
Asked by: Scottie
Because of the way Home Depot has the Q+A setup, most of the other answers to this question are wrong. This Q is shown on the page for the Bosch 1/2" x 12" bit. I have that bit, HCBG-18, and the carbide tip measures at 1/2", but the round shank measures at 7/16". It could be that it will fit in a 3/8" chuck. However, the question itself, reading it carefully, is asking about the Bosch 1" x 12" bit. I bet many of the other answers here did not notice that, and are answering regarding the page they saw the question on, and then Home Depot shows the answers on all the Bosch hammer drill pages. This is great for increasing the number of answers, but it does so at the cost of accuracy.

I'm just wanting to be able to drill 1/2" drainage holes in extra large clay plant pots. It is overkill? Anyone have any general advice on how to approach this? Regular drill okay? Start drilling from inside or outside? Many thanks for the help.
Asked by: Edie
This drill bit is capable of doing what you are trying to accomplish. However, you may have difficulty drilling holes in clay planter pots because they are fire kilned, very brittle and tend to crack when drilled. I have tried this myself before with mixed results. Tip: keep the drill bit and area wet while drilling.

Bosch 1/2 in. x 10 in. x 12 in. BlueGranite Turbo Carbide Hammer Drill Bit for Concrete, Stone and Masonry Drilling is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 258.

The project was to drill 6 6in deep vertical holes in the top of a concrete wall. I bought this because I don't have an SDS hammer drill. I used the Ryobi cordless hammer drill with a regular chuck. The bit would come loose in the chuck after a while. One bit seems to last for about 2 holes. I had to buy 3 bits. It drills real fast for a while, then gets hung up for a while before making more progress. I'm wondering if the concrete has hard rock aggregate in it that the bit is hitting, dulling the blade quickly. I got the job done, but at $15 a pop it cost me $45 to drill 6 holes, with a lot of struggle. Maybe I should have rented a SDS drill and bought a pro concrete bit?

It has a reasonable price for it but when it breaks it seems to be pretty pricey for $17. If I can return this product it would be great. I didn't add an image because I don't have the tool with me. and I usually don't do surveys but since I am having to go buy another drill bit, it makes sense to let u know this. If I am submitting this, then I am expecting an answer to this.

I didn't want to wait while ordering the exact one I wanted. Was looking for a hex drive end. Less chance of spinning in hammer drill chuck. This bit held tight despite some nasty rebar in 6 of the 12 holes I had to drill. This was used during installation of a truck lift in my shop.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 5/8" Blue Granite drill bit for concrete Looks good and a reasonable price for what it is supposed to do. Unfortunately, it didn't hold up too well. On the first hole, I found that the drill began to wander. I adjusted the drill angle a small amount but it wasn't working. Finally, I pulled the drill bit out of my hammer drill and looked at the cutting tip. The cutting edges were chipped and completely rounded off. I ended up with an oblong indentation in my garage floor approximately 3/8" deep where the point of the bit was. Although there is rebar in the concrete, the damage to the concrete wasn't deep enough to hit any steel. Since this was intended to be a hole for an anchor, it is now unusable because the cutting edges failed to cut and allowed the bit to travel sideways rather than downward making the hole entry too large. Very displeased with this bit. Sold by Bosch but made in China. After I get this damage patched, I'll have to go find something that will work properly. Save your money and buy something better. I'm not sure if Home Depot will take this junk back.
