Does this come with a drill piece to drill through tiles? I can't see one mentioned or see one in the pictures but I was told by a person who left a review that it does include one

Looking at the image (assuming it is the correct image for the item selling - they're not always accurate) I would say no, it doesn't. The person who responded has probably used it a metal hss bit.

Ye that's what I thought. Thanks for confirming. Is it safe to use a metal drill bit as i'm thinking of paying Screwfix for a set of drill bits for tiles for £12.99. I've got some metal drill bits lying around somewhere

Looks like they could have had a different 70 piece set. Here's a Q+A.

You can use a metal bit, but you are likely to get splintering. Not a neat finish. If you do want to use a metal bit, put some gaffer tape on the tile and drill through that. Slowly.

What about using a drill bit through the grout and then switching to a masonry drill bit to go through rest of the wall?

Was thinking of using my wood bit to start as it's got that sharp tip to it and then switching to my masonry bit to finish the job

Mark the tile first and then put 3 or 4 pieces of clear tape over it to help you get grip when first drilling and you should be ok
I just buy quality bits in the sizes I want.. These packs aren't great imo.. You only ever need 5, 5.5 and 6mm masonry and 3mm for pilot holes. 10mm and 22 or 25mm for door latch, but most won't want that if you don't hang a door so buy the DeWalt Extreme bits or good quality ones, but cheapo 3mm in packs for pilot holes. I snap them all the way time when I put drill down

Who put the tiles up? Do you know how they were put up? If they were laid on a spread of adhesive you would possibly have no problem. If they were laid on 'dabs' of adhesive you could be drilling into a space. This would almost certainly crack the tile.
Can you not get a tile bit? Only a couple of ££, save you lots of grief.

This type. Put gaffer tape down. Centre punch (just enough to mark) then drill slowly.

Yup they the ones I added to my basket. When you say centre punch is that when I hammer softly just to make a very tiny dent and then start to work with the drill bit?

What about doing this?



Saves me £12.99 or is it not worth the risk. Better to use tile bits instead of starting with a
wood one like in this video

You can do that. It's your choice. If it works, great. If it goes pear shaped you will have broken tile to replace or look at..

You have to balance the £12.99 cost against retiling a bathroom /kitchen. And also are you going to have to drill tiles ever again?

Personally, £12.99 is a small investment and the drill bits last for many, many uses.

Centre punch is a fine tip chisel, usually used in metal work to provide an indentation so the drill bit doesn't skid.

Mrty is there anything I can buy to check if there is any electrical cables before drilling into the tiles as I'm drilling near a plug socket and my oven

You can buy a stud detector (not a bimbo in a short dress), but make sure you get a 3in1. Does metal, wood and electrical.

Theoretically wiring should go straight up and straight down, but best not to trust it.
