About this deal

With the above in mind, dry cutting diamond core bits are generally used when working indoors, whereas wet cutting bits are used externally. If you keep forcing the core cutter through, when you actually break through you will force a large amount masonry away from the outside of the hole, making a total mess of it all.

The best tool to use for this is a cable and pipe detector. You simply pass it over the surface of the wall and if any items such as these are found, lights and/or a buzzer indicate their presence. How to Drill a Hole using a Core Drill Corded power drill with safety clutch and variable speed ideal for use with a core drill How Fast Should you Drill When Using Core Bits? Although it is not recommended, many use hammer action with these drill bits to increase their cutting speed and ability. This will ultimately wear the core bit out much faster, but as they are generally cheap this is not often seen as a major concern. Trying to drill more dense objects such as solid concrete will in most cases cause the bit to heat up, wearing it out even faster. As this point it’s a good idea to ask someone to stand on the other side of the wall and let you know as soon as the guide drill breaks through and when it does, stop drilling.

With the drill held straight and true, keep drilling, stopping regularly and withdrawing the bit from the hole to allow it to cool down. When withdrawing a core bit from a hole ensure that it is still rotating. With everything assembled it’s time to start drilling your hole. Position the tip of the guide drill on your drilling mark and start the drill slowly, increasing speed slightly until the pilot drill starts biting into the wall.

Once you have cut 25-30mm into the surface you are working on, you can withdraw the core bit and remove the guide drill and carry on without it.

As diamonds are extremely hard they grind their way through the surface you’re working on creating a sharp and clean cut. If you are able to drill right the way through the wall in one go, the core drill will remove the core at exit. There are a few different types of core bit and the best one to use will very much depend on the size and depth of hole you’re drilling and the type of material you are drilling through.

Essentially the speed that you drill at will be dictated to you by the size of hole you are drilling. As a very general rule of thumb, the larger the hole you are drilling and the denser the material you are drilling through, the slower the speed you should drill at.
