Works great, need methods for cooling
At $4 a piece these have been great for fastening fine wood siding on an exterior cement block wall. I've gone through 3 bits so far and realized the reason they would break after much use is an overheating issue. If i took short breaks between each hole the bits lasted much longer. Someone else mentioned dipping in water which I'll have to try (thanks man).

Excellent. Had no problem drilling anchor holes in limestone capstones. Would recommend this bit with the use of a hammer drill.

works good just let it drill without pushing or pressing too much on the tool, otherwise it will burn quick

Did not drill more than 1/8 deep. Waste of money. This should be sold at Harbor freight.

We are sorry to hear about the issue you experienced with the bit. The HCBG01T is for Concrete, Stone and Masonry Drilling. You can use these bits in a regular drill/driver. However, to achieve the best performance, we would recommend using the bit in a hammer drill. The vibrating action that you get with a hammer drill is what aids in the bit drilling through the masonry. Please let us know how we can better meet your expectations in the future. We look forward to hearing from you. You can also return the item to Home Depot within 30 days form the purchase date. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

The bit worked only slightly better than the non-masonry bit. It could be that my drill is too lightweight.
