  • How To Dry Core Drill On Tile Or Stone

    Master Wholesale President Blake Adsero shows you how to dry core drill in tile using a RockMaster Diamond Core Drill Bit.

    You will need two pieces of wood, one for a template, and one to put under the tile so you don't drill into the surface you are working on. Start by using a hole saw wood cutting bit of the same diameter to cut a hole in the wood template. Once the hole is cut line up the template with the spot on the tile or stone that you wish to core through.
    Before you switch to the RockMaster dry core bit, remove the center drill bit from the core bit with an Allen Wrench. The core bit works much faster without it.
    Once you have done this, start drilling using the high speed setting on your drill. After the hole is started you may remove the template to finish the core hole.

  • How To Wet Drill With A Non-Coring Bit

    Master Wholesale President Blake Adsero demonstrates how to wet drill on a stone tile with a small RockMaster Non-Coring Drill Bit. You will need two pieces of wood; one for under the stone tile, and one on top to help steady the drill bit as you start to drill in to the tile.
    Start by marking the tile where you want to drill the hole. Next drill a pilot hole in the top piece of wood and line it up with the mark you made on the tile. This will be your template. Now you can change bits and start drilling with your non-coring bit. Line up your template with the mark on the tile, pour some water in the hole on the template, and start drilling. As soon as the hole is started you can remove the wood template and drill directly on the tile. Make sure to continue to add water as you drill through the tile. If you are drilling on a vertical piece of material, we sell a wet drill bit guide from Alpha Tools that delivers water to the drilling spot.
