cutting circles into ceramic tile
I know the tool you used. First, you need a 1/2" drill as the carbide tile hole saw needs a lot of torque. Second, keep the cutting area wet.( This is not in the directions supplied with the hole saw. ) The constant water supplied to the cutting area works well. If it is Wall tile, the rotozip tool with a tile cutting bit works well. If it is floor tile, stick with the hole saw.
Good Luck, Len
Submerge the tile in a tray of shallow water and take your time drilling through.
Although I don't recomend it, I've succeeded in drilling a 1/2" hole in a tile with a regular steel bit with this method.
Don't forget the eye protection. Give it a try on some scrap.
