EDIT: Just tried a 4mm one in a battery drill on my concrete floor and it was very quick.
Also tried a 7mm thick wall tile and it went through in 3 seconds.
I don't think they'll last doing this though as they arn't designed for it. Obviously they can't do deep holes.

This porcelain stuff is a bitch to drill - even the tradesmen are having to go out for special kit :|

No - think they're ceramic which is different - I can drill through them easy enough. Will send a pm.

I know I'm very late to the party but I don't suppose you have any of the carbide drills left?
