How To Choose An Appropriate Drill Bit Set

Aug 22, 2008
A power drill is what you will need for your small work around the house. These power drills can help bore the drill a hole into almost any material within the home say wood or glass or even special stained glass. What you need is the perfect drill bit set for your needs.

A drill bit set containing steel, spiral bits is not very expensive and is almost enough for drilling needs at home. However, they cannot drill into concrete or metal as they require special drill bits. These drill bit sets have drill bits ranging from size eight millimeters to thirty two millimeters. Now if you need to have some concrete or masonry work done then you need the tungsten carbide drill sets as they have the required strength to drill holes through concrete. Mind you, they may be expensive than the regular steel bits.

Another advantage of a power drill is that they can work as screw drivers if you buy special hardened steel bits which have round shank on the top and the bit head is like a regular screwdriver. If you need to have the drill bits for use with nuts and fasteners then you will have to buy a drill bit set which has square base and round shaft. That square base fits into the fasteners and the round hole into the power drill.

For doing drilling into the glass or stained glass then you need to have drill bit set which contains diamond drill bits. These drill bits have diamond either bonded or sintered onto the drill tip which helps drill holes easily into glass. There are special diamond drill bits which can also drill holes into the porcelain tiles.

All said, the basic set of drill bits that you should have is the steel spiral drill bits for most of the home do it yourself kind of needs. For different requirements there are different types of drills and there is nothing which fits all.

Most of the manufactures of the drills usually have a set of instructions packaged along with the drill sets. That set of instructions is usually enough for the new person to accomplish the work. However if you feel that they are not enough then make sure to get those from the internet. Even after reading those if you think you cannot do it yourself then you should spend some money and get an expert to do the task.
