    You may actually find the 'gold' drill bits are cobalt. Sutton have them in a purple box. $450 for a set 1mm-13mm. :shock: They are my "cant get the bastard big bolt out at work" drill bits. Are you drilling with a really little drill bit first?

    The drillbit isn't actually made of diamond. They're covered in powdered diamond, or have diamond edges, or something on a smaller scale than a literal diamond drill bit :)

    masonry drill is designed to be used with a drill on hammer, try that and itll smash something as fragile as a cpu, dad had to drill through some expensive tiles to put a heated towel rail in some guys bathroom once, had to get a special drillbit so as not to damage the stupidly expensive and fragile tiles, wasnt a normal masonry drill bit because you didnt need hammer, i remember it took ages though, and the drill bit was very expensive compared to normal drills (also didnt help it needed to fit a ramset chuck so they charge you a premium on that i guess)

    I had a 386 made from ceramic that I took a different approach with.
    Instead of drilling a hole through it I soldered a loop of wire onto the pins. Worked fine
