drilling on tiles
Good morning. Can i use a masonry bit in drilling on a tiles? I mean, can a masonry bit works on tiles? I have something to screw on my bathroom wall (tiled wall).

Yeah, you should probably start with a real small on first then up size to what you need.

What type of tiles?

I would go with a diamond tipped bit. Keep it wet, a spray bottle of water would work. And take your time, don't try to rush it.

FWIW, I had a small shampoo holder I wanted to install in my tiled shower. I wasn't crazy about drilling into the tile so I used a waterproof silicone adhesive instead. It hasn't fallen off yet. I figure if it does, then I'll drill.

Drill bit
Depending on the type of tyle, the bits are different. I would suggest a carbide bit for ceramic tiles. A masonary bit won't work. Talk to your tile store or something like a Home Depot. The woung bit makes the work that much harder. A tip: is to put a piece of masking tape donw first so you bit won't slide while you are starting the hole.
