I need to remove broken potions of 6 1x1 ft. square tiles. I used a
dremmel tool with the grout bit, but the bit simply burned up. The
tile are installed over slab. I think the bit could not handle the
harness of the concrete below. Is there a different tool that will
handle this small job better?
I like a thin masonry blade in a circ saw when doing
large areas like that. Besides the grout, you
can cut large "X"'s in the face of the tile
to help breaking them out.
The saw isn't too hard to handle, but maybe practice.
Set a ShopVac hose up to catch the dust.
Do you have a 4" angle grinder? For $10 you can get a diamond saw blade
for it that will cut right thru ceramic, grout, concrete, porcelain, etc.
Get a masonry chisel (not too wide!) and a drilling hammer and chisel them
out once you get a piece loose.
