      This unit is a little tricky to make work, but is FAR better than trying to use a carbide bit on Porcelain tiles. For the money, you can't beat it! A few comments: - Be careful opening the package - the directions on the back are small, hard to read, and easy to destroy when opening. - There are 3 small holes in the upper container that drip water over the bit. 3 was too many - the water drained out in about 15 seconds! I covered one hole with black tape, and 2 was about right. - You can expect to need about 2 re-fills of the top container before you complete 1 hole in 3/8" porcelain tile. Of course, you have to figure out how to get the water out of the bottom container! I drilled a 1/16" hole in the bottom, and just let the water drizzle onto a towel below. - Skip the square plastic retainer that goes between the upper & lower containers. It just makes it harder to get the upper container put in place (meanwhile your water is dripping out!). It doesn't really serve any purpose. - Drill slowly with even pressure - think grinding, not drilling. - Be careful removing the containers from the tile when you're done - the adhesive is very sticky, and you might break the container! - I drilled 6 holes, and the diamond abrasive felt just as sharp when I was done as when I started.
