Cutting Ceramic Ceiling Tile already Mounted for Round Light Can

I had a broken clip on an OLD existing Ceiling Shower Light, and I purchased a 6" remodel Airtight can, but the original hole came out to be 5-3/4", so I need to open it to accomodate the 6" can. All electrical connections are complete and operational, I am just getting tired of attempting to complete with a Half Round Rasp.

Hi schaabr,


Thank you for your question and welcome to our community.


The quickest way that I know of to grind through your ceramic tile will be to use a high speed  Dremel  Tool with a ceramic grinding/cutting bit.  It may put out a bit of dust but the job will be done a lot faster than using your Half Round Hasp.
