What is best for this ?


I was drilling through a column and a wall tile.had problem with both

but for the tile i first punched a small point then i drill through that point so the drill wont slip.
But for the column i am using a Bosch hammer drill (trying to fit a fastener)
and pretty tough job it was..and both things really took a long time ..

any tips to get it done fast..

What size hole? For a larger hole drill a smaller one first. Let the drill do the work. If you push to hard it can slow down the hammering effect. Back it out once in a while to clear the dust.
Sure the drill was sharp? They wear out pretty fast.

Must be missing something.
"4 inch and length is approx. 7 inchs"
What exactly is it your trying to achieve?

column's what - steel, black iron, wood, concrete, ( ? ) or are we supposed to guess ? maybe you need a 550rpm 1/2" drill & steel bit(s) OR diamond bits for tile,,, hard to see your house from our house can't imagine why 1 would use a hammer drill unless its conc,,, NEVER use a hammer drill on tile as it shatters tiles

typically we like to let power tools do their work,,, usually easier IF we pick the right tools
