Tungsten Carbide Drill Bits -- As Good As Diamond Drill Bits for the Do-it-Yourselfer?

Bosch has recently released a new product: tungsten carbide drill bits suitable for cutting glass and tiles. “These tungsten carbide bits are diamond ground to a precision point that eliminates walking and its reinforced head prevents the carbide from cracking.” Quoted from the original press release, February 13, 2008.

According to the company these bits are perfectly suited for working with ceramic, making them “the best solution for cutting glass, bathroom installations, drilling and fastening mirrors or even setting screws in glass furniture.”

As tungsten carbide drill bits are cheaper than diamond drill bits , Bosch is obviously trying to provide the Do-it-yourselfers (and professionals) with a cheaper solution than diamond, while minimizing the chipping issues associated with carbide.

These new bits start at 1/8” and going all the way up to 1” in diameter, the industry’s largest bit size, they are equipped with a 3-flat shank to reduce slippage that leads to more accurate cutting.
