        A:  Not sure what 709 means by "they are design[ed] to spin, not pound". The item description says: "Use in hammer mode for faster drilling in masonry and concrete". You should use a hammer drill with these when drilling concrete, not an impact.

        by|Oct 24, 2022

          A:  They are design to spin not pound should use a rotary hammer when using these drill bits. Thank you for asking hope this helps 709

          by|Jun 26, 2022

            A:  Yes But. They work differently. A good explanation can be found at https://www.protoolreviews.com/impact-driver-vs-hammer-drill/. As I read this article, I found that my preference for a hammer drill in cement was based on more than my gut feeling. So, your answer is yes, you can. But you probably shouldn't.

            Q:When using to drill into ceramic tile, should water be sprayed onto end of bit?

            4 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  No, I did not used water on my tiles. Make sure you follow the instruction for the speed and material application.

            by|Apr 21, 2021

              A:  I only use water when I can de the bit heating excessively. I usually test the material I am cutting. J G

              by|Mar 9, 2021

              A:  Hello ButchyBoy, Yes, especially on very hard ceramics. Same goes for thick or hard metals, lubricate with oil. Bits do not like being overheated which destroys and shortens their lives. To aid in keeping water on the tile, you can stick on a plastic or rubber circular shaped peice with double-face tape and fill with water. Trim off a 1/2" piece of rubberized pipe wrap for example to create a small reservoir of water. Hope that helps, Jeff

              A:  I did not find a cooling or lubricating liquid to be necessary with any materials I've drilled, but it does suggest on the package that it's NOT recommended for porcelain tile. As the materials listed also do not include glass, I'd suspect it has to do with the brittle nature of the material. I'd suggest you use a Milwaukee Glass and Tile bit or a Milwaukee Tile and Natural Stone bit, as I've had good results in both glass and tile with these bits.

              Tip broke on 2nd hole.
              I was using the 3/16 bit to drill a pilot hole into brick. The tip broke on the second hole. An unexpected delay for my project.

                2 bits and both worn out after 1st hole!!
                Tried a 3/16 and 5/32. Both are toast after 2 holes. What a waste of money. Can I get my money back?

                  Broke on the second hole!
                  After the first hole into concrete, I was happy and thought I’d get the job done even quicker than I’d thought. The second hole I’d attempted met too much resistance, so I chose a different spot (this part will be covered, so being exact wasn’t so important). It started out well and then, it felt too easy… because the bit snapped off in the hole! So, I didn’t even get to make a second hole in my project (I’ll need about 50) and now I have a huge mess with materials all over that can’t simply be put away. I usually love Milwaukee, but this was such a disappointment! I’d even asked the person at the hardware store if I should get the masonry bit, specifically, and he assured me that these were made for it too.

                    Poor quality
                    Could not drill one hole. Started with the 5/32 and as soon as it broke the surface the head broke off. The same with the 3/16. 1/4 I got the center started and thought it would eat then stopped. The bits were rounded and stopped cutting. The other two as soon as I started the bits broke in an L shape. TRASH.

                      I would not buy this product again
                      Could not drill 1 complete hole in concrete floor before the bit wore out (see pic). The 3/8 bit worked fine on dozen other holes but this 1/2 did not. Appears to be a defect. Like to get a free replacement

                        Large chips in the carbide on first use. I wouldn’t recommend these unless I was unlucky enough to get a bad set

                          Great to have in home improvement kit
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Milwaukee bit is great quality drill bit with a lot of versatility. Drills perfectly round holes with ease (using an impact driver). Came packaged well with recommendations on what speeds you should use (with both a standard drill and impact driver) on various types of construction materials.

                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These things mean business out of the box, sharp, strong, and ready for action. I've been using these for a little while now around the house and they seem to be able to tackle whatever I toss at them. Comes with a good span of bit sizes for different applications and the little case keeps them in one place so they don't wander off. Good for the home toolbox or the jobsite.

                              Awesome Drill bits
                              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Got these around a month ago to use for projects in the house and am so glad I ordered them. The drill bits are very sharp and durable. They drill through wood, concrete, and metal with no issues. I used the drill bits to put security locks on my doors, and I didn’t have any problems. They’re one of the best drill bits I’ve ever used and are very handy to keep around the house.
