Bosch Multipurpose Drill Bit 6 x 100mm
The best drills for wall tiles
This is the second time that I have bought Bosch blue Multi-purpose drills from Screwfix. I decided to extend my range of sizes because I needed to drill into an (expensively!) tiled bathroom wall to fix the bathroom fittings. These drills did the job perfectly - there were no cracked tiles.
Note that SDS Extreme masonry drills are NOT suitable for tiles because their tips are deliberately made blunt, so that they can hammer their way through bricks and concrete. If you need to drill through fragile materials such as wall tiles then use the Bosch Multipurpose drill bit WITHOUT the 'Hammer' setting. (Good tip: Put masking tape over the spot where you plan to drill - it stops the drill bit skidding when you start the hole.)

I had to drill 32 holes into Â¼ iron bar; I had nothing in my repertoire of drill bits that would last more than one hole! I had seen multipurpose drill bits advertised recently, so thought I would give them a try. Somewhat apprehensively I acquired two Bosch Multipurpose Drill Bit 6 x 100 mm.
Brilliant almost like a hot knife through butter. Slow drill speed with some 3:1 oil as lubrication to keep down metal drill cuttings and dust.
Should have only purchased one drill bit, Iâll give the other to my son! Have not got the audacity to take it back!

Packs a punch
I've used these drill bits for years, absolutely eat through brick and metal.
Can't fault them they do the job well and last for ages.
Think the bad reviews may come from people with drills that aren't up to much or if the battery is low
