    Answer This Question

    A:  No! As indicated in the description these bits are meant to drill glass and ceramic. And they work well.

    by|Mar 28, 2023

      A:  No, they are specifically designed for glass and ceramic tile.

      by|Mar 30, 2023

        A:  The GT2000 is designed to drill though glass and tiles. For metal, we recommend a cobalt drill bit. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

          Q:What is the maximum speed for these bits?
          by|Dec 13, 2022
          2 Answers
          Answer This Question

          A:  This GT3000 is a glass and tile bit that should be used with a starting RPM of 200. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

          by|Dec 15, 2022

            A:  While Bosch does not specify maximum RPM's for these carbide bits, one would have to ask several questions in any attempt to respond correctly. What material are you drilling? For example, the glazing on the tile is significantly harder than the core. There are way to many possibilities in stone for countertops to begin to answer your question. Again, to use another example, granite and quartzite are very hard, but on the Mohs scale of hardness (from 1 to 10, with 10 being hardest) quartzite is slightly harder, so it would be much more difficult to drill through. It measures around 7 while granite is lower at around 6 to 6.5 Are you using any form of coolant like a water mist? That too would change your answer. So, we need more information to provide you with a real answer

              A:  I used them on regular bathroom tile. I presume that is what you mean by porcelain.

              by|May 7, 2023

              A:  Not easily . Hope you have lots of time and energy . Diamond bits are the way to go for tile .

              A:  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.

                I am writing to follow up on a recent review you posted on the HomeDepot.com website regarding the GT2000 Glass and Tile 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 as you expected. What kind of material were you drilling into? For harder kind of tiles, we recommend a diamond bit or a diamond hole saw. This bit might work better spraying a little bit of water when drilling. We may have bit that would work better for your application. We are hopeful to hear from you to help you resolve the difficulties you've experienced. Thank you for your time.

                  I bought these to drill holes in tile to make Christmas ornaments. Well my wife was making them. I was able to drill two holes per bit and could only use two bits. The others were too big. These were recommended by the HD associate.

                  Won't drill through tile
                  Bought these to drill 8 pilot holes for blinds in both of our bathrooms. Should have gone with titanium but took a chance on these as they are clearly marked for tile and glass. Used lower RPM's with my Dewalt 20v drill with little force and still broke off two heads. Kept bits and tile as cool as I could with spraying water as well. Completed 2 pilot holes and the 1/8" bit broke off then 3 more holes later and the 3/16" broke off. The problem with these is that they are not one solid piece of metal. The head is tack welded to the body. Notice in the picture it is a clean break and you can even see the polished metal where the tip would have been welded on. Would not have broken off if it was one solid piece of metal. Last time I purchase anything from Bosch.

                    Good performance to drill the tile, but not glass
                    Very easy and fast to drill the tile, but for drilling glass, very time-consuming and difficult. Haven't finished the second hole on the glass and the drill bit is already completely damaged.

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 last to even finish the second hole. These bits work best with a low RPM and using a standard drill/driver applying slight pressure.

                      Does not work with ceramic subway tile
                      Was putting in pilot holes with the 3/16” then working up to the 1/4” to put in anchors in our kitchen for a couple of shelves and also a vent. Started out working great on the first two holes then things started to slow down a lot. Kept the bit wet as recommended and even moved at a moderate speed. By the 5th hole the 1/4” diamond part completely fell off. Don’t know where it went but now I can’t complete this job. For the money I thought it would of lasted a bit longer. Would not recommend.

                          These drill bits go through Ceramic Tile like a hot knife through butter. Just make sure you spray water on the bits while drilling as not to wear or burn the bits down fast, or to break the tile!

                            Most Bosch products are "things of beauty", and I have to say these drill bits are no exception. If you examine them closely you can't help but notice their high quality "look" right down to the dark and clear character etching on the shafts. I tested them on probably what is the toughest job - old thin window glass, drilling fairly close to an edge. I used a Bosch hand drill running at 1300 RPM (max recommended RPM is 2000) and backed-up the glass with 3/4" plywood. I can confirm that holding the bit fairly close to perpendicular does in fact easily keep the bit from "walking" when starting the hole, which is quite impressive on a hard flat surface like glass or ceramic tile. A fine white powder is produced during the drilling. By the way, these bits are not intended to be used on any kind of stone, such as marble - drill glass and ceramic tile only. You will also have to be patient and use fairly light pressure. In my test, I did get some concentric fractures on the backside of the glass, kind of like when a bullet passes through window glass. I probably needed a flatter and stiffer backing, as I also cracked the glass during one attempt - see the photo.

                            Heavy Duty
                            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!
