      A:  These items worked on a paver stone stair case when installing a railing. I would think it would work on natural stone as well.

          Gets the job done!
          Used this to attach a flagpole base to the house. Made the job very easy, drilled through to the block and allowed for a tight fit with the anchor screws.

          Fresh bits are a time saver
          I use Tapcon fasteners for all my concrete applications. I buy fresh bits for different jobs. The cleaner the hole, the better the grip. Fresh bits make the task easier.

          Tapcon ALWAYS
          I have used Tapcon fasteners for years. I always like to use fresh bits when drilling into poured concrete. After all, the hold it much better with properly drilled pilot holes. Many of the larger pack screws have a bit included however I feel a fresh bit is needed to finish all the fasteners in the package.

          Not performing as it should be!!
          Got this to drill 8 holes on tile/ concrete to install a handrail for my stair with 1/4 in. x 3-1/4 in. Hex-Washer-Head Concrete Anchors as recommended. About the 4th holes with my hammer drill, the bit tip is completely gone, had to go get another one to finish the job, the 2nd bit didn't work well when I get to the 8th hole. Finally get all 8 holes drill, clean the holes with compressed air, try to install the screw, but it was so tight that I can barely screw it in about 1-1/2", and when I try to go further, it cracked my porch tile!! Now I need to find a way to make the holes a bit wider in order to fit the screws without further damage my porch's tile!!

            bit was bent. Wobbled horribly on first hole. Packaging was all in place so I think it was manufactured poorly.

              This drill bit did the job I purchased a cement block and wanted to keep a cactus statue on it. I drilled through the cement with this proper drill bit. It gets hot due to friction so let it cool between holes. Worked great!
