Drill bit recommendations


Recommended Posts

Use the correct speed for what your trying to drill, trying to burn your way through on high speed does the drill edge no favours :P , let the tool do the work ;)

and use a decent cuttting fluid when drilling esp......stainless/8274 shafts etc :ph34r:

Oh.....Colbalt are cracking drills :)

Tony, as above, Colbolt are lovely but pricey. Unless I'm drilling something hard I tend to buy normal HSS drill bits and then sharpen when I need to.

Good cutting fluid is also well worth buying. 3 in 1 oil is pretty good for everyday stuff but Molyslip cutting compound is the dogs dangely bits.
