What Is Core Drilling?

Core drilling is a simple process used to create a hole through tiles, pavers and concrete big enough to accomodate fence posts and grout. The machine used is generally a hand held machine with a trigger just like a normal drill. It requires 240 volt power and a hose to be connected. The core pot (drill bit) screws onto the end and is available in various sizes. For semi-frameless glass posts, we recommend a size around 76mm. A core drill has no hammer action so tiles & pavers never crack. The core pot is diamond tipped and with the hose connected, it forms a perfect cut every time. All general tool hardware outlets have core drill & core pots for hire.
