Erbauer Diamond Tile Drill Bit 6mm
6mm diamond drill bit
I recently purchased one of these erbauer diamond drill bits, after trying all the different methods of drilling tile on a porcelain tile I had recently installed. Using an SDS without hammer and a Bosch pointed bit specifically designed for tiles. Both failed. I read a review that suggest using one of the erbauer bits, but start the hold with a 6mm Bosch multi surface bit. This worked a treat.
I marked the hole, used the multi surface bit (this drills the face of the tile without the bit sliding across the face and damaging it). Then replaced the multi surface bit with the erbauer. I made sure the bit was constantly cooled using cool water and that I didnt drill for more than 30 seconds without cooling and cleaning the bit.
Slightly expensive at Â£16+ but cheaper than replacing a cracked tile. get one bought and save yourself struggling.

Excellent drill perfect
Went through very hard porcelain tiles with ease - need to be patient. High speed is best

I was hoping for more!
I had read the reviews and thought that this would be the one to get the job done. I have porcelain tiles and knew that I needed something reliable to get the job done - this wasn't it!
Three holes and its as blunt as a brick.
