Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value Having read other reviews I opted to go for diamond tipped bits, as I had a number of holes to drill in tough porcelain tiles. After the third diamond tipped bit, which cost over twice as much as this bit, I decided to try these cheaper bits. I was surprised to find the its performance was not much different to the very expensive diamond tipped bits and wish I had started with this one. Needs a guide to get it started on porcelain tiles.

Will this drill through metal?

Asked by: Andyctd1990
Hi Andyctd1990. This drill bit is made for tile drilling and so it is not optimised for metal drilling. Instead, I would look at our X-Pro Metal Drill Bit Set, SFX code 48930. These would be more suitable for the job.

does this drill bit fit into any drill?

Asked by: adam2222
Hi adam2222. We can not advise that this would fit ANY drill, as many drills have different chucks and clamping methods. However, if the drill in question uses an SDS chuck, then it is safe to assume that this drill bit will fit.

Would I need a 5mm or 6mm drill bit with 3.5 screws (not sure size of wall plug but its 30mm in length)?

Asked by: Tim2016
Hi Tim2016, firstly you would need to know the size of wall plug then go half a mill (mm) of the wall plug for e.g 8mm plug = 7.5mm drill bit diameter. Then the working length must be longer than 30mm.

should this bit be used at slow speed for drilling ceramic bathroom tile

Asked by: paulxyz
Hi paulxyz. Do start of at a slow speed, we also recommend oil to lubricate the drill bit.
