Yes, shouldn't be a problem with the correct bit.

I bought these earlier this year from B&Q on a similar offer and am very happy with them. :thumbsup:

Hot deal.

The deal is visible on their website. Search for item number 4892210109606. The specs don't indicate if the batteries are NiCd or Li-ion based ;-)

Re ceramic tiles... It is more about the drill bit than the drill... a nice sharp one will do the job :thumbsup:

That price will def be Ni Cad

I too would reccomend these as a VERY good cheapish drill set.

I have TWO Ryobi 14.4v sets and five batteries (Don't ask) and they do all I want and have helped me to refurb three properties in the last 5 years inc two large decking jobs, and they are STILL working fine.

Re Ceramic Tiles - I'd recommend getting a glass/tile drill bit. I got one a couple of years ago from Machine Mart only cost around £2 -3. See link below

machinemart.co.uk/sho…e/1

couple of questions for the pros here..
1) why would one need separate hammer and non hammer one? Would this be better (functionality wise) than one which can do both?

2) Ryobi brand..would you put this above Black and Decker? Bosch? Site? Makita?

When you drill through tiles use a sharp drill and put a piece of masking tape over the spot you are drilling. It stops the glaze cracking. Worth practicing your technique on some waste tiles beforehand.

1, Usually a non hammer one will be a bit smaller, that's it's only real advantage.

2, Ryobi stuff is decent. Personally I would rate it well above Black and Decker, slightly above the green range of Bosch, I've never used any Site stuff but Makita is better.

Excellent, missed out on the Bosch hammer drill deal. Just got a new flat, so these will be perfect for the little jobs around the place.

It's much faster with two drills for most jobs: one is loaded with a drill bit for pilot holes and one loaded with a screwdriver bit. Save's keep swapping bits all the time. :thumbsup:

What screwdriver bits does anyone recommend? (from B&Q, to make it easier), or does it come with any already?

can you get holster type drill belts, so i can pretend im a cowboy.

I was just about to buy some repalcement Ni-Cad batteries for my 7-year old Ryobi - they're £25 a pop, so this is a steal for great quality kit. As pointed out, it's very handy with woodwork to have one setup to drill pilot holes and another to drive the screw.

Heat and rep added - a top spot - many thanks,
John

I bought this boxed set from B&Q a few months back, it came with two bit holders, two PH2 star and two 7/32 flat screwdriver bits. These were in a small plastic bag beside the instructions, in a compartment within the toolbag. :thumbsup:

have been known to drive a shed too !!!

Another vote for Ryobi kit.

Good quality and I saw my exact same Ryobi electric blower being used by the Ferrari F1 team in Monaco on the tv. Looked like the pit crew were using it to clear the pit area under the tyres of the car. Only difference was they had it liveried up in Ferrari colours but it was deffo a Ryobi like mine.
I was quite chuffed.

If it's good enough for F1 then it's good enough for my drive. :thumbsup:

I bought these exact drills from a deal on here last year- they were the same price but there was a voucher taking them down to about £40. Best £40 I ever spent, these are great drills. Wee spirit level on each and an led which shines at your drilling 'target' which really helps for those awkward places. Tiling my bathroom as we speak and these go through travertine beautifully. Will be fine on ceramics too.

Just picked mine up, very pleased. Thanks so much for taking the time to share.

Thanks very much to the OP, picked these up today. Haven't opened them yet but played with a demo one and it seemed good quality and judging by the feedback here they're all good :thumbsup:

just reserved one - not v good with diy, but NEED tools! is there a trick to use as scewdriver?

thanks for share

Put a screw bit in rather than a drill bit?
