Answer

Thank you for your question. The BM2006 is designed for drilling in brick, cinder block and tile, for use with corded and cordless rotary drills. It is not designed to drill into stone so you will not get as much life out of the bit.

(What's this)
This looks pretty much like a standard masonry bit. It has the special cutting edge welded into the top. The package warns us not to use hammer mode when using the bit, which may be hard to remember. Perhaps that limitation is due to the very small size (⅛”) of this drill bit. I was able to drill into cinder block OK, so long as I did not hit a stone in the cement.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I'm not a professional on drill bits or drilling into concrete, but I have a hammer drill and got these to attached covers on vents in my foundation thinking since they are carbide and for brick and block that they could be used in a hammer drill. But, right on the front, it says "Not for Hammer Mode". On the back side, it says the the bits can bind causing breakage, bending, and/or loss of control. And again, it says do not use in a hammer drill. I was careful with it and used a slow speed to see how well it worked for a couple holes and it seemed to work fine. But, to avoid breakage, bending and loss of control, I went with a bit that was specifically made for a hammer drill for the rest of my work. I am not recommending this item, not be cause it didn't work well, but because I feel if a bit is for concrete, it needs to work in a hammer drill. Just my opinion.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
With a carbide tip and "open" fluting, this bit made quick work of drilling into concrete. The bit quickly brings the drilling dust up to the surface, minimizing the need for backing out the bit to remove the residue from the hole (see video). Due to the small size (5/32 inch) of the bit used, there was a tendency for it to "hop" when started in contact with the aggregate within the CMU. For precise hole location the starting point could be located with a punch prior to drilling. It is noted on the packaging that this bit is intended for use only in rotary drilling mode, not hammer drill.

Bought to drill through ceramic tile as one of the Q&As from Bosch indicated it could do so, which is commonly accepted feature of carbide tipped bits. It barely made a dent into the tile after a significant amount of time. I ended up getting a diamond bit that drilled through the tile much easier.

Response from BoschToolsOctober 28, 2020
I am writing to follow up on a recent review you posted on the HomeDepot.com website regarding the BM2003 masonry bit that you purchased. Home Depot is focused on ensuring complete customer satisfaction. As the manufacturer, we are very interested in supplying consumers with a quality product that delivers the expected performance. We are sorry to hear that the bit did not work well for drilling into the tile. Some ceramics are harder than others so this bit may not work best. We would recommend a diamond bit or a diamond hole saw for drilling into ceramic tile. For further assistance contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST. Thank you for your time.

Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
It did the job, but it took quite a while to get through the material. Not sure whether the material was extra hard, or if there would have been a more robust option.
