What are the best drill bits for masonry, you may be wondering? These drill bits include bits for brick and bits for concrete. Each type is made specifically for the task at hand. Brick is softer, which means the bit does not have to be as tough. To break through concrete, you need an extra hard drill bit. Ultimately, the best bit will come down to the material you are drilling into and the type of project you’re planning. Home projects can use standard bits while heavy-duty projects would need industrial drill bits to ensure that you get the best results.

Can you drill into masonry without a hammer drill? While a regular drill may work to some extent, hammer drills are designed to break through brick, stone and concrete in a way that regular drill bits cannot do. The vibration and hammering action makes the drilling far more effective. When it comes to harder masonry such as concrete, it is even more important to use the right drill. You may end up wasting a lot of time and effort trying to get through hard concrete with a regular drill and you could damage your masonry drill bits in the process as well.

“Can I use a masonry bit with a regular drill?” is a question we’re asked often at Ruwag. Although you can use masonry drill bits with regular drill bits, they may not give you the same results that a hammer drill would give. Hammer drills are designed to hammer into concrete, brick and other types of masonry using an action that requires less time and work. The vibration of the drill is something regular drill bits lack. If you are drilling through hard masonry such as concrete, you may end up wearing or damaging your masonry bit using it in a regular drill.

Do you need a special drill to drill into brick? Brick is a softer type of masonry compared to natural stone and concrete. Although a hammer drill will make the process much quicker and easier, you can use a regular drill. Regular drills can overheat, so they may not be ideal for bigger projects. The most important thing, whichever type of drill you plan on using, is to use the right drill bits. You will need to use masonry drill bits made for brick or multi-purpose drills with strong tungsten carbide tips that can be used to drill into brick.

What is the difference between a hammer drill and a regular drill, you may be wondering? Regular drills have a simple rotary action that drill holes into metal, wood, plastic and ceramics. Hammer drills work a bit differently, with a hammering, vibrating action that allows them to break through harder material such as concrete. These drills break into materials rather than drill into materials, weakening it so that it can be removed. The fundamental difference comes down to the material you are using. A regular drill will be fine for DIY jobs around the house but a hammer drill is essential for heavy-duty projects involving concrete.
