Hi all I have a lot of bathroom furniture to fit onto a tiled bathroom. The tiles are ceramic. I have already drilled a few holes in the tiles but each hole takes ages to drill! I haven't timed it but roughly around 10-20 mins per hole. (Each hole is 8mm). I have two drills. One is this basic 18v cordless green Bosch drill with 1.5Ah battery (this one). The other drill is a very old Black & Decker corded hammer drill. I can't find the exact model but is almost identical to this one. It is 350w and has one speed. I have a good selection of drill bits (carbide-tipped bits, ceramic tile bits, blue bosch multi-purpose bits, masonry) so I don't think this is where the problem lies. Currently i'm using the Bosch cordless to pierce the ceramic tile glaze with the carbide-tipped ceramic tile bits but then drilling through the entire tile takes ages, so I then switch to the corded Black and Decker drill (ensuring hammer is switched off). I get a lot more power with this but even then it seems to take a long time until I'm actually through to the other side. Then drilling through the actual masonry (behind the tiles) is very quick. So my question... is this just how long it takes to drill through a ceramic tile or should I upgrade my hardware? I know drilling into a porcelain tile is tough but didn't think ceramic would take this long!
