Answer

Thanks for your question. If the pot is glazed then yes the glass and tile bits would work best. If the pot is not glazed then a masonry drill bit would be recommended, like our HCBG25T.

Can this drill bit be used to drill through porcelin tile?

Asked by Bear February 9, 2014

Answers

yes, turn your screw gun on low speed, you can put a piece of masking tape over the place you are going to drill and drill through it. this will help you bit not slide around on the tile when you start. i would get a cup of water and drill a little way though dip the bit in the water to cool it down. drill a bit more, dip it again. it will help the life of the bit.

Can I use this bit with a dremel

Asked by Ilesha August 9, 2013
2
Answers

depends on what dremel you have. you need a chuck. i don't know if the dremel you have has a chuck. personally i would not use this in a dremel, this bit doesn't work super good if you are at high rpm. if you don't have a drill here is a cheap option that you can get if you don't use it all the time. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Ryobi-5-5-Amp-3-8-in-Variable-Speed-Drill-D43K/205216326 drill is a very useful tool to have. you don't need anything fancy just something that gets the job done.

sweet bit!!
Needed four holes in a tiled shower for a curved curtain rod calling for a 1/4" bit. Picked this bad boy up, marked my holes, and had all four holes drilled out in less than a minute. It was AWESOME. Made the job quick and easy. It does walk a tiny tiny bit so just take the start a little slow. It does make a mess so put some plastic down for a quick clean up. I used a trashbag and that worked for me. Seriously... This bit is the real deal. Super clean holes too.

Couldn't even drill 3 holes
Customer review from BoschTools.com logo
I bought this on Monday. The bit went dull before after 2 1/4 holes were drilled. So much for getting my showerhead mounted. Used as directed with 18-V Dewalt, frequent cooling but it obviously was defective or not the quality that they claim.

Response from Bosch Customer SupportApril 15, 2020
Thank you for the review and feedback. What material were you drilling? The GT300 Glass and Tile Bit can be used with different tile material, however, if it is porcelain or similar material, we recommend using a diamond hole saw. You will need to start at low RPM. We may be able to send out a replacement. Please write back with your name, address and phone number. We hope to hear from you soon, as your satisfaction is important to us. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST. Thank you for your time.

Performs ridiculously well!
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
I used this bit to make a few dozen holes in 70 year old tile and every hole looks like it was laser cut! I also needed to drill masonry behind the tile and I just used the same bit instead of changing it. The bit still works great.

Used for drilling a partial hole in windshield to stop crack. Lubricating the drill point with wd-40 type product makes for a clean hole.

Slow and steady wins the race. Used to drill hole for fan pull chain in ceiling fan light globe replacement. Actually needed much larger hole than this but I started with small hole then switched to larger glass bit after smaller hole was complete. Bit works perfectly if you have the patience to drill slowly and always apply consistent pressure (no side-to-side wobbling). To protect against "skittering" of bit across glass when starting, I taped piece of cardboard to surface of glass first - then drilled through both it and glass. Hole came out perfectly round with no chipping...
