can these be used to drill holes in mugs,tea cups, ceremic pots for drainage without cracking or breaking them

Asked by DrGreenthumb July 31, 2017
10
Answers

Gerally no. If you want to drill holes in ceramics you need to get a diamond bit specifically designed for that job. If you have "soft" locally thrown mugs, etc. you might get away with a good hole. But if you want to put hole in a large production house mug (bowl pot etc.), they tend to be very hard, and so you need the diamond bit once again. I have one on my drill press and use it with water and have had great success. The only dishes that have resisted my efforts are glass cooking dishes of all makes and types (Pyrex, Anchor Hocking) and thin, highly patterned glass dishes.

Get diamond head bit, it is $20 a piece and lasts much longer than any masonry bit and drills much faster. Keep the hole and bit wet and drill at low RPM.

Will these bits work with a Dremel or similar rotary tool?

Asked by Ben June 12, 2016
5
Answers

If your chuck will accept the drill shank sizes. Dremels typically run at very high speed which is not recommended with these bits. If you have a variable speed dremel or equivalent, you need to run these bits relatively slow and use water to keep the bit cool.

Yes, although I wouldn't want to work near the edge of the glass. Also make sure to have solid support behind the entire sheet with some sort of backer.

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.

Hi there! Thanks for the review with regards to GT2000. We apologize about the bit not lasting. What material were you drilling into? This drill bit is designed for glass and tile drilling, however, if the tile material is harder than the natural stones, we recommend using a diamond hole saw for a better result. We would like to help you resolve this matter in a timely manner and would like to send you a replacement. Kindly email us your name, address and phone number at boschtools@custhelp.com or call us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST. Your satisfaction is important to us.

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.

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!

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
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.

Drilling through Tile is not easy. These bits did the job and I was able to successfully install a grab bar in the bathroom drilling through 2 inch tile (See Picture). I had to keep the bit drilling relatively slow or it would heat up and get red hot. Will recommend these bits to friends and family.

I bought this set to drill holes for wall anchors to hang plumbing attachments (arms etc) in a new shower I remodeled. The tile was porcelain so not necessarily the hardest of surfaces. The number of holes I needed to drill was four (1/4) so I figured the price wasn't the bad ($15), I needed a new set of bits for this type of application and the product was perfect for the job as well as future ones due to the four sizes. However I burned through three bits with the four holes that needed to be 1/4.That is the 1/4 bit and the two descending sizes. That being said, they DID do the job great with little to no chipping of the tile and no cracking at all. I suppose if they were a "one and done" set for a few bucks less it would make sense but for $15 and now I am down to one bit it does not work well for me. I will recommend the set solely because they did drill a good hole in the porcelain.
