You need to get a special tile drill bit and follow Rick and Kiteman's advice.

GO SLOWLY even pressure at lower speed.

A step drill is best for putting holes in thin materials. They tend to leave rounder holes than your typical twist drill.

Tile drill - assuming a ceramic plate.


Also, stick a patch of masking tape over the point where you want the hole, to stop the drill-bit wandering.

You can use a saw or a knife

I have a friend named Ryu and he specializes in given hadoukens which puts holes in most material. Then tend to be large so it might not fit your application

Glass plate? ceramic plate? or a plate of steel?

First 2 Id use a glass bit (spear point ) or a diamond core bit for 6mm dia holes and bigger.

Metal plate Id recommend a HSS bit (high speed steel) as is common practise on Google.
