Product Description

Product Description

The accessories in a BOSCHÂ glass and tile bit set bite into hard, smooth surfaces to produce a clean bore on the first try. Each bits tip features gripping texture to prevent slippage. This also reduces the amount of pressure that needs to be applied as you begin drilling, so an investment in a Bosch bit set reduces the chances of cracking or breaking materials. This sets shanks range from 1/16 to 1/4 inch, and each boasts three textured sides at the point of attachment for improved seating. Bosch drill bit set heads are reinforced for durability, so expect them to have long lives with no damage to their cutting edges. The entire set comes in a Brute Toughâ"¢ case to keep the tools organized, which also fits in your back or shirt pocket for convenience.

From the Manufacturer

This 8-Piece set of our product features an unique product geometry with a precision tip, high quality carbide and reinforced head that results in best-in-class speed and life when cutting in glass and tile.

Unfortunately Amazon does not tell you the bit sizes in this set. I just purchased one (Jan. 2010) which has the following eight bits: 1/8, 3/16, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8 And 3/4 Inch.

Shortly after getting this kit, I used the 3/4" bit to drill a hole in the bottom of a porcelain pot that we had been using as a flower pot. The bit started very easily, and cut through quite nicely. Very satisfied with the performance.

Bosch GT3000 Glass and Tile Set, 8-Piece I purchased these bits for a bathroom remodel project. They worked as advertised cutting holes in thick glass tiles and regular ceramic tiles. They have very sharp points so getting them started was easy. I built a dam with painters tape under the holes I drilled, to contain the mess, and sprayed water liberally as I drilled. Very satisfied with the purchase and the bit sizes included in the set.

I had to drill 12 holes through my shower tiles to install grab bars for my wife. I was more than apprehensive since I had never drilled tile before. I wanted to get a good set of drill bits to minimize the chance of breaking irreplaceable tiles (1950s color is no longer available). After looking at many glass/tile bits and bit sets, reading review after review, I finally settled on the Bosch GT3000 8-piece set. I couldn't have made a better choice.

After placing the grab bars where I wanted them, I masked over the footprint for each end of the bars, then placed the bars back on their desired location and marked where each hole would go. Then, taking "the bit in my teeth," so to speak, I got ready to drill the first hole. I had filled a water bottle to cool the bit, just as I had read on some "how-to" site. I pressed the bit tip into the tile and heard a small crack as the tip penetrated the glaze. Drilling at a slow speed and keeping a small stream of water at the contact point, I proceeded. My heart was beating a 100 times a minute and my breathing was shallow. I was scared to death.

Within seconds, the bit was through the tile. On to the second hole - same experience. Then, before I knew it, I had all twelve holes drilled and not one cracked or chipped tile. These bits are so sharp that the twelfth hole drilled as easily and quickly as the first, and every hole was clean as a whistle.

I finished the holes with a regular titanium high speed bit, mounted the bars, and voila, a done deal. I cannot say enough in praise about these Bosch glass/tile bits. They are worth every cent andt then some. I highly recommend them. When you buy the best, you can expect the best in performance. Oh, and the case is really nice, too.

I needed a good set of drill bits for our new ceramic and glass tile bathroom. The bits were excellent for the ceramic tile. Started easily with no wandering. Clean holes. The glass tiles were another story. We used 1" mosaic tiles for the shower area, but I needed to drill holes for the handheld shower set. I practiced on extra tiles beforehand and found that the drills would get through the glass, but the spade style bit would catch and crack the tile 3 out of 4 times. I finally bought a diamond core bit and that worked well.

The set has a nice collection of sizes (1/16, 3/16, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, and 3/4 inch) packed in a nice compact heavy duty case. The sizes are useful for various projects around the house.

I used the 3/16 inch bit to drill holes in my ceramic tile shower wall to hang a towel bar. Put some masking tape on the wall, marked the holes and just drilled without no problems. The bit cut a smooth hole with just a little pressure and very little walking on the surface. 4 holes, all done right the first time in the right place.

They work well -- at least on ceramic tile. I have not tried them on glass and don't currently have any plans to do so (don't need any holes in my windows :-)). Definitely recommend them if you plan to do some drilling in the bathroom.

Drilling free hand was a problem. I was drilling 1/8" glass for a picture frame. The bit would not bite and I had to score it with my dremel tool using a diamond bit. Did ok after that. I had to give up on another habit of mine which was drilling a small hole and working my way up. Small hole is fine but it seems that it works better if you work up in larger increments. Also don't drill through all the way. Just like wood drill the small hole drill the larger hole half way and then do the other side. If possible. This would not happen with tile. Tile is glued in place glass is open on both sides and unsupported. It tends to chip if you drill all the way through from one side. Also a drill press helps. My first attempt I had a poor work surface and the drill tilted just as it went through. You can imagine what happened. Funny thing that hole kept it from braking all the way it just cracked about 3" out from the hole. I knew to do that with fiber glass I guess it works for glass too. LOL.
Once these bits bite they work great. I recommend using a squirt gun or water bottle to cool the glass and bit and it cuts down on glass dust. Not good to breath that.
Hope this helps somebody. I'd never drilled thin glass before this so it was a learning experience.
