I am a DIY'er and tried every bit at the big box stores to drill holes in the underlying ceramic tile with no luck whatsoever. I bought five of these bits from Becker and then drilled holes perfectly and efficiently, I only needed 3 bits, compared to the 8 I had already wasted from the big box stores.
Ok, I have bought 20 of these bits. I specialize in bathroom renovations and have to install a lot of porcelain tiles. I have used the most expensive bits that you can buy and wasted all my money. I was introduced to these bits by a frameless glass installer. I have bought 20 of these bits over a year ago and still have at least a dozen left. They are the best best. Takes less than a minute to go through the toughest porcelain tile. I am hooked.
I am a tile contractor in Tucson AZ we need to drill through a lot of Porcelain tile to install Grab bars, shower doors ect. The Becker Industrial bits are by far the best they blow away the high end core drill bits. These bits are reasonably priced Thank you Becker Industrial.
We operate an up-scale residential remodeling company and install a great deal of porcelain tile. When it comes to drilling for shower doors (etc), these bits are superior in cut precision and durability.
I got my samples and put them to use. First hole went perfect. Just as advertised. The 2nd hole I was next to a grout line and the bit slipped a little and bit into the tile from the side. Tore the end off of the bit. I used the 2nd bit to finish that hole, (and didn't bite back into the side of the tile), and 4 more holes. Worked as advertised, just want to advise any one to not get 1/2 in and 1/2 out of a tile/grout line. Ordered more bits to have on hand. Thanks!
I had Porcelain tile installed on one wall in our Master bedroom. The tile went around a window and inside the sill. I needed to drill holes for the screws that hold the curtain rods. I bought some Becker Porcelain Drill bits to do the job. I was amazed how easy and quick I got the holes drilled. No splitting or cracking of the Tiles. These bits are a must for drilling holes in Porcelain Tile.
I’ve been installing showers for 20 years now. This was the most phenomenal product I’ve ever used to drill through porcelain tile. One drill bit got up to 9 holes! Best one I’ve used yet. The bit doesnt run off, havent cracked any tiles. Any bits I've used in the past dont even come close. Glad to have purchased.
