“Are drill bit sets universal?” you may be wondering? Many new DIY enthusiasts assume that drill bit sets are designed for one purpose - drill through materials - and that it’s possible to use one set on multiple projects. In reality, most drill bits are made for specific materials. You could use one drill to drill through masonry, wood or ceramics, but the bit will break or wear quickly if used on harder materials. Multi-purpose drill bit or universal drill bit sets can be used on various types of material, however, it is best to use bits made for the material you are drilling through.
Which is better - cobalt or titanium drill bits? And, better still, how do you choose the right bit for your project? As a general rule of thumb, a cobalt drill bit is best to drill through harder materials such as cast iron and stainless steel. These drill bits are durable and long-lasting. For softer metals and wood, your best bet is a titanium drill bit. They are ideal if you are doing lighter drilling. They may wear down quickly if used often or used on heavier metals. Ultimately, choosing between cobalt and titanium drill bits comes down to the material and project.
Are expensive drill bits worth it or can cheaper drill bits get the job done as well? Generally speaking, as is the case with most things in life, you get what you pay for. In the case of drill bits, high-quality bits will typically cost more, but they will last longer and have a higher performance rating. If you are drilling through harder materials and doing more heavy-duty work, you want drill bit sets that last. But, if you’re doing small home renovation projects, cheaper bits can get the job done, even if they don’t last as long as expensive drill bits.
Can you use regular drill bits in a hammer drill? Hammer drills have a mechanism that pushes drill bits forward in a hammering movement while the drill bits rotate. The hammering motion is often needed when drilling through masonry. Brick, concrete and other types of masonry need specialised bits that are able to break through hardened materials. To get results without breaking your drill bits, you will need to use a masonry drill bit in a drill made for this type of drilling. You might be able to break through brick with a regular drill, but you will battle to get through concrete without a hammer drill.
One question our customers often ask us is, “Can I use normal drill bits in an SDS drill?” Short for Slotted Drive System/Shaft, SDS drills have far more power than standard rotary or hammer drills. These drills can easily drill through the toughest materials, including concrete. They have a hammering action combined with a rotary movement. Using regular drill bits in an SDS type drill or SDS bits in a regular drill can result in damage to the drill and bits. You can, however, get an SDS chuck adaptor that enables you to use regular drill bits in your SDS machine (excepting straight shank masonry bits).
