I have used unbranded carbide tipped drill bits with for years and found them to be slow cutting, yet often managed to crack a tile. These drill bits seem to cut sharply rather than mostly rub like the old bits. This makes for both faster cutting and less heat, which makes them much safer for drilling glass and other very brittle materials. I use a drill press whenever possible and clamp the material firmly to prevent motion, but with padding above and below to avoid stressing the tile. So far I haven't cracked a tile. Another fine product from Bosch.

Carbide tipped drill bit LAST LONGER!! I usually use this kit to drill a pilot hold for a bigger hole.I was able to drill through a ceramic tile in 8 seconds. If you want the bits to last, I recommend that you don't let it heat up while you are using it. Whenever possible. I will submerge the piece that I am drilling under water. The water discourages heat build up. Another big variance when drilling tile, stone, slate etc. is the hardness of the item you are drilling. Softer ceramic or porcelain takes very little time to drill through. One other piece of advice to avoid breaking the tile while drilling....DON'T PUSH HARD WHEN YOU ARE DRILLING.....

These carbide tipped drill bits worked perfectly. I have so far tried them on both ceramic and porcelain floor tiles and, in both cases, they performed flawlessly. The set contains four different sized drill bits (1/8", 3/16", 1/4", and 5/16"). I used the 5/16" bit to test against two tiles. The bit drilled a clean hole right through the soft ceramic tile quite easily. I only once stopped the drill to let the bit cool down. The harder, porcelain tile, took about two to three times as long to drill but that is to be expected. And, of course, the longer you drill a hole, the more often you should stop and let the bit cool down. Both holes were pretty clean with minimal chipping, but any small chips were really was an issue of my not holding the drill completely steady. You do not have to apply a ton of pressure, just steady pressure. What I really liked about the bits is that no "pilot" hole or indentation or anything was necessary and the bit DOES NOT SLIP against the tile (and scratch or chip it). Simply hold the drill with a firm grip, ensuring the bit is perpendicular to the tile, and apply a firm, steal pressure as you start and run the drill. The result will be a very clean hole (see photos). Overall I am VERY happy with these bits and they are priced quite reasonably for the value they provide.

This is a perfect set to have around the house with a couple of easy execution steps.. Over the past two decades we have put more natural stone and glass into our house. At first I did not want to drill holes into these surfaces but that meant not getting the most out of kitchen and bath possibilities. These bits are superb quality and drill a perfect hole if you follow a few easy steps. 1. always start when the drill bit is touching the surface. 2. Start only if the drill is pushing inline with the bit. No crazy angles. 3. start slow and don't be afraid to use a hammer drill. Easy and slow to high speed in a line with the bit.

not for ceramic tile
while these are probably work fine in masonry while they probably work fine on other masonry products, it took 3 bits to drill 4 holes in ceramic tile.
Response from BoschToolsJun 30, 2022
Hi there! We apologize for the experience you had in using NS2000. This set is designed for natural stones. We have the GT bit series for glass and tile. We also recommend watering the material and using a lower RPM in drilling. You may also use a diamond hole saw for high-density materials. For more information, please call 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. CST, Monday through Friday.

    I used these drills to drill holes in a tile floor for the legs of a laundry sink. They were perfect for making the holes without a problem. I did find that after about 3/4 of an inch that a steel mortar drill was best for the final 1/4 inch of the drilling. I used one inch long plastic tube inserts once the holes were drilled to secure the screws for the sink's steel legs.
