Hi there! The GT3000 Glass and Tile Bit Set is designed for glass and some tile materials, however, we recommend using a diamond hole saw for drilling porcelain. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

Which types of bottles are tempered glass??? I.E. Beer bottles. My wife has a idea foe a lighting project.

Asked by Handy October 21, 2013

Answers

I don't know if bottles in general are made from tempered glass or not... but I have drilled through a fairly thick wine bottle at the base on the side in order to insert a thin led light string. I found out just how tough glass can be, even using one of these excellent bits that are brand new! Patience, practice and a high(er) drill speed will help you a lot! If your wife's project plan is extensive, you might want to "practice" on a similar bottle to see just how well it would work and how long it would take ... it's not like drilling holes in pine!

I was surprised at the substantial head on these bits. Very well made, but the proof is in the drilling. I drilled two holes in a piece of tile, one using a Bosch bit, the other using a standard-style bit from a competitor. Both holes were smooth and clean, but the standard bit broke as it exited the hole. The Bosch bit is ready for more! Recommended!

Best bits to cut through tile and glass - and leave nice clean round holes!

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Wow! I had previously used carbide concrete bits to drill through Porcelain tile and they did a great job but took a while. These tile/glass bits chewed through the Porcelain tile EXTREMELY quickly and left perfect round holes! And on the backside of the porcelain there was NO BREAKOUT! Wow! No skipping on the Porcelain, no wandering, just glide through the porcelain like it was a piece of oak wood! You just have to use these bits to believe how quickly and perfectly they drill through porcelain - I was totally flabbergasted! I am just amazed at how well these porcelain/glass drill bits work! Wow! They do need to touchup their packaging by labeling the outside of the hard plastic box with a label of what bits are inside; I have several Bosch drill bit in cases (the cases are identical) so I used to have to open them to see what was inside; ergo, I used a black sharpie to label the outside of the box so I know what type of bit is inside the case without having to open it first. Also, the labels on the bit sizes on the container box are RED on RED - impossible to read; I had to take a black sharpie and lightly touched the raised lettering to see the sizes easily. All that said, I am totally blown away by the quality and sharpness and toughness and perfectly round holes these bits drill in porcelain. I wish all products I buy were designed and constructed this well. Man, what great bits! There ya go!

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This is a nice set that does its job well. I tested out the 1/4" bit on three different types of tile - ceramic, glass and granite. It blew through the granite in a matter of a couple seconds and took roughly 10 seconds to complete the hole on the ceramic tile. It took quite a bit longer with the glass tile to complete the hole and the tile actually broke at the end; however, that was mostly my fault as I probably should have chosen a smaller bit to use on a 1x2" piece of tile. I have full confidence that with a smaller bit or larger glass tiles this set would work beautifully. I also appreciate the sturdy case these bits come in. Definitely recommend this set!

Was helping my daughter with a glass terrarium, she need a hole drilled in the glass. I bought these and it started well but as soon as I broke through the glass cracked. She said they could fix it but I was very disappointed. Should have bought diamond bits like I had intended. Probably should have started with the very smallest and worked my way up but... oh well. They did wind up fixing it so not a total loss

Only certain types of tile apparently. Not porcelain. Had to go to Home Depot and buy a different bit from Milwaukee in order to drill holes in porcelain tile.

I am writing to follow up on a recent review you posted on the HomeDepot.com website regarding the GT3000 glass and tile bit set that you purchased. We're sorry to hear that the bit did not work for your application. What type of tile were you drilling? If you are drilling into Porcelain we recommend a diamond hole saw. We hope to hear from you to help resolve this issue. You may email us at boschtools@custhelp.com for option or contact us at 1-877-267-2499. Thank you for your time.

This bit set is nice..however! I'm guessing the ceramic tile I am attempting to drill holes in is much harder than most ceramic tiles..I have 8 holes to drill for a shower door install and at the pace I'm going( drilling in short burst while spraying with water) I have my cordless hammer drill set on hammer.. I will continue on at a slow pace...I built this shower from the floor up, so I dont want to crack any tiles now for sure!

I am writing to follow up on a recent review you posted on the HomeDepot.com website regarding the GT3000 glass and tile bit set that you purchased. What type of ceramic tile were you drilling into? These bits are designed for glass and softer tile. If you are drilling into harder material we recommend a diamond hole saw instead. We hope to hear from you to help you further with this matter. You may email us at boschtools@custhelp.com or contact us at 1-877-267-2499 from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST. Thank you for your time.
