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.Read more ›
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.
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.

All the bits I've tried work quite well with the notable exception of the smallest bit. It appears to be slightly off balance and more importantly, does not cut very well.Published 17 days ago by Johannes Cabal
Worked fantastic to drill through ball mason jars as a project. I did this wearing gloves in a utility sink and with a slow stream of water to keep the bit cool. Read morePublished 1 month ago by James
