No, the angle start is just that, a way to start the drill process but right after you start drilling you tip the bit back to straight up and down.

Is this made for a drill driver or impact drill?

Asked by Tom26x9 June 13, 2020

To be used with a drill only!

Looks like a hex head...but i doubt if it could be used on an impact drivet ... so why the hex head?

Asked by Tom26x9 June 11, 2020

Answers

Maybe so it doesn't have a chance to spin in the chuck when the material gets hard. Idk. I carefully use mine in my impact all the time. I think it helps to get through that first layer.

Awesome bit to use on tiles
I actually made 42 tile holes with 1(one) bit. I installed 5 ( each bar needs 6 holes) ADA shower bars plus 2 tilt up handicapped toilet bars( each needs 6 holes). The secret was to cool the bit very OFTEN (I just dunked it in cold water from time to time and go easy on it so it won t overheat. Also, I cleaned the mud accumulation with a steel wire and later with just the right size nail. The red paint is off almost completely but the abrasive part is still in great shape. Because I have another project almost identical, I bought another bit from HD ( saw a price increase in a few months) but if the old one will still deliver performance I will go for it first. Great product with great result. Buy it, you won t regret

This is a “must-have” for drilling porcelain tiles! I installed a frameless glass shower door which required 1/4" holes for the hinges. I’ve got plenty of experience drilling holes, including in masonry, but this was the first time in porcelain. Regular carbide tipped drill bits won’t work, or at best will burn out quickly. The “Milwaukee 1/4 in. Diamond Plus Hole Saw W/ Arbor” is the answer. I was skeptical at first. It’s more expensive than masonry bits. And it’s not pointy like a drill bit. Instead it’s a small cylinder with diamonds fused to the round tip. How do you even get the hole started? It’s actually not difficult, but completely different than regular drilling. Here’s what I did: - Go slowly - Get a spray bottle full of water - Set the drill on the lowest speed setting - Hold the Hole Saw at a 45 degree angle and very gently touch it to the tile - If you push hard it will skitter across the surface - As it spins (again, slowly!) it begins to etch the surface of the tile until there’s a groove - Continuing to spin the drill slowly, slowly tilting it to 90 degrees - Now you’ll have a shallow, round cut which makes it a lot easier to keep the drill straight - Begin spraying the hole with water as you continue drilling - You can spin the drill a bit faster now, but not still slower than you would a regular bit - Oscillate the bit as you go (roll it around in the hole) - Be patient. Did I mention to go slowly? ;) - Keep it wet - this preserves the life of the bit - Stop frequently to clean the grit from the hole and the bit - It gets easier with practice It took me about 10 minutes per hole in 3/8" thick porcelain tile, but after 6 holes it’s still cutting at the same speed. I don’t know how many it’s capable of, but it can definitely do more. To preserve its life I switched to a regular masonry bit once I was through the porcelain and into the mortar and backer board. Highly recommended. Model # 49-56-0505

Best drill bit for drilling tile. I had thin geometric tile I really was concerned about cracking or breaking. most mortar drill bits chatter and can break tile....this has a diamond round head that gently cuts through. The only caveat I make is that I made a jig of scrap wood with two pieces of sticky carpet pads cut from the carpet squares to press against wall. drilled a hole through the scrap wood to hold the bit steady...it tends to walk if held without something to steady the thrust. I marked the tile, lined up the marks through the hole in the jig, pressed the jig tight and inserted the diamond hole saw. It cut perfect aligned drill holes through delicate tile without issue. better than mortar bits I have used, just need to keep initial cut steady. I had to install this vent assembly on new tile. best drill bit I have used for drilling tile, well worth the money.
