SD> Hi. I am need to drill four holes in the ceramic tile in my bathroom to

Probably have your project done by now -- I had some computer problems
as have been off-line for a while.
Mounted towel bars on ceramic tile some time back. Used masking tape
to mark where I wanted to drill, then took an awl and tapped that to
maybe get a slight depression. Started off with the smallest bit I
had and applied light pressure to the drill to get a hole started.
(Seemed like nothing was happening for the longest time.) Got a
depression started, increased the bit size by two, enlarged the
depression some (another 5-10 minutes of drilling), increased the bit
size again until I got to the size hole I needed.
