Perfect for cutting a hole in a ceramic tile
Was looking for a good quality drill bit for putting a 1in hole in a large ceramic tile for a shower arm. I actually made a 1 1/4 diameter hole. This worked flawlessly. I used light pressure and a dipping can of water to put the bit in after 10 seconds of cutting to cool it. the adjustable retracting pilot bit is excellent at keeping the bit from walking. I was looking for something of quality. When I saw the Milwaukee name, and it mimics the design of high quality core cutting bits, I was all in. I would recommend it for what I did.

    I used this Milwaukee 1-3/8 in. Diamond Plus Hole Saw to drill holes for both the shower head and the tube spout. The shower surround was made of some type of very hard plastic with reinforcing and the instructions said to use a diamond hole saw, and this worked great. I hope sometime in the future I'll need it for something else as it's quite pricy for 2 holes, but then again it's $975 less than one plumber wanted to trim out the shower...really! Another two wanted $500...So it's a bargain in my book! LOL. BTW You'll also need to buy Milwaukee's Retractable Starter Bit with Large Arbor For Diamond Plus Hole Saws Model # 49-56-7135 Store SKU #1000043590 (for hole saws larger than 1 1/4") I see in the pics now on the HD website that Milwaukee has changed the back of the hole saw to include access holes for easier clean out, nice...Milwaukee is always improving their tools, which is cool!

    I bought this Milwaukee diamond hole saw to drill out a hole for a one hole shower controller. The material I had to drill was a plastic resin shower surround rather than fiberglass, and the instructions said to use a diamond hole saw, & this worked perfectly with no chipping or cracking of the surround. Looking back I really should have used a larger hole saw like a 4", but this actually did work, I just had to make a little cut on either side of the valve with my carbide M18 multi-tool for the screws for the cover plate.

    The 1 1/4 inch Milwaukee diamond hole saw with the diamond cut arbor cut through the bathroom tile very easily along with spraying water onto the drill to keep the heat down. Only took a few minutes to drill the holes. I was then able to install the wingits plates to install the tub grab bar. Worked like a charm. Thank you.

    Bought this to drill a hole through our sink to fit the supply lines of our new faucet after duliing a wood hole saw bit. Thought the sink was porcelain when we got this but found out it was cast iron after the hole was drilled so it worked super well. Be aware that you need to buy an arbor bit to attach this to your impact driver as this product doesn't come with it.

      I used this to drill a hold for a bathtub drain.The project went perfect. I used some plumbers putty to make a little pond on the tile and drilled right through.

      I will recommend this product if the job is on cement blocks but no for brick work.
