You ought to test a thing before you review it, but I had no pressing need for a hole anywhere, and the only piece of scrap glass I have is tempered and would shatter if you tried to drill it. So I chucked the bit in the drill press and tried to make a hole in a quartz river stone. I only managed to make a dimple, before the bit dulled aand would go no further. That's not a fair test - you need a diamond to drill stone. So I resharpened the carbide on a diamond hone, and drilled a series of holes in a coffee cup. You can see the results in the photos. This was fast and did not seem to dull the bit at all, and it still measures about 0.250". For both tests, I had a squirt bottle of water handy for cooling, lubrication, and dust suppression. As far as testing goes, I think a coffee cup is a lot like a tile. For those of you that are wondering why I would ruin a perfectly good coffee cup, this actually turns it into a nice and interesting planter for the aquarium, and I will probably do several more. Most of the flower pots you can find are either too big or too small. The glazed surface is easy to clean of algae. So this bit is a very useful addition to the toolbox, even if I don't have a bathroom to remodel.

Simple enough design that cut through ceramic floor tile with ease. I experienced zero travel when starting the hole. No vibration while drilling and the residual heat from the bit was minimum when I was done with each hole.Small enough to fit in any tool box. If you are in the trades or a home do it yourselfer, this bit will save you a lot of aggravation.

The drill bit works. It does do the job of drilling holes on tile and glass as said, but the issues is that it is very slow to do the process. One thing good about it is it does not walk when starting the drilling, and I really appreciate that. The issue for me is the time being taken to drill one hole. I wish it could do a little bit faster. The holes made in the tile and glass was very clean.

Carbide Tipped 1/4 " Glass and Tile Drill Bit. It works great when you want to install certain fixtures in the bathroom walls and you can't drill thru the ceramic tiles or you have a project that involves drilling thru glass. This 1/4 " bit is what you need, I had no problem drilling thru ceramic or glass but, you need a good drill to really drill thru with no problem, maybe a high speed drill, good little piece to have in the tool box if you're into fixing things.

Carbide tip drill bit that leaves a clean one quarter inch cut. The bit was a little shorter than I expected, measuring only about two and one half inches long. The bit measures one quarter inch wide. In the past, I've used cement bits to cut through tile. It was always difficult to break through the surface and then keeping the bit straight. Not so with this bit. I tested it against a tile and it easily broke the surface and left a clean cut.
