Cobalt Drill Bits

You should invest in drill bits that will last for years. If you want to get the biggest bang for your buck, cobalt is the way to go. But once you have purchased them, you will never go back to a lower quality tool. They are so strong that they will work their way through the job with ease. Professionals choose tools made of cobalt – especially in drill bits.

Cobalt drill bits can be bought in sets encased in hard plastic cases holding them in gradient slots by small clips. Always store the bits in the case to preserve the sharpness of the edges. There are general use twist bits, spade style bits, bradpoint bits and masonry bits. Having the right tools for your job will make the job go more smoothly.

The general use style, also known as twist bits, are the most commonly purchased type of bit. When most people talk about drill bits, these are the ones that come to mind. These are versatile bits that are used for wood applications. However, if you buy the twist style in cobalt, you can drill many more materials than just wood. A set of bradpoint bits will come into use when drilling into any material that allows the bit tip to walk, like hard woods. There are also spade-style bits which look like a bradpoint tip, but fan out into a very large bit. You can drill a large hole without negotiating a huge bit that is the same large size from tip to shaft. Masonry bits are made to cut into concrete and brick. Many of these masonry bits have a diamond tip to make it easier to cut into these hard materials.

Each of these different types of bits can be bought in sets, or as individual bits. Since bits have different uses you will not need a set of every type of bit. By determining what kind of bit you think you would need most often, you can commit to buying cobalt drill bits that match your general requirements. Once you have this hardened set, you will be able to reach for your case of bits and select the size you need for any job.

Shopping for the right drill bits for the job you are beginning will save you a lot of time and aggravation throughout the job. If you have the wrong tools, drilling a pilot hole before you use the bit that you actually need will add unnecessary time to the job. Drilling the hole you need in one pass is the goal. Having the right size and strength of drill bit will make the job go quickly.

Buying cobalt drill bits will help you turn out a professional product. The right tools will get you there quickly and easily. Don’t try to save money by buying cheap tools, it only costs more money later.
