Get To Know The Different Types Of Drill Bits
When working regularly with drills, you will know that not all bits are created equally & for successful drilling,
best suited to the material you are working with & manufactured to high standards to deliver precise results!
Check out our wide variety of drill bits used for precision drilling on various surfaces, such as steel, ceramic, silver, gold & more:
- Diamond-coated drill bits are used for drilling into glass, stone, gemstones, rock, pebbles, minerals,ceramics, porcelain, tiles & glazed pottery. Must be used in conjunction with water to flush out all impurities & debris while drilling. DO NOT use diamond coated drill bits on clay, soft wood, plaster or plastic. These materials are too soft and will cause the diamonds on your drill bit to clog up. These come in tapered shank ( 2.34mm)
- Carbon drill bits are the most brittle of all available drill bits, used mainly for drilling into soft metals, as well as wood & plastic. These come in straight shank or tapered shank ( 2.34mm)
- Tungsten drill bits are often made from steel with a carbide tip. They’re commonly used in industrial applications due to their superior strength. They can even cut through concrete, tungsten is the hardest steel on the market currently.
- HSS (High-speed steel) drill bits are most commonly used for drilling, HSS bits are hard and much more resistant to heat than high carbon steel. They can be used to drill metal, hardwood, and most other materials at greater cutting speeds than carbon-steel bits. They have largely replaced carbon steels. Best used with Bur lubricant or Beeswax. These come in straight shank or tapered shank ( 2.34mm)
- Centering drill bits are designed to help create accurate holes in metal, wood, & plastic materials.
- Centering drill bits – this Vanadium Swiss drill bit is a universal twist drill & guarantees optimized, centered drilling due to the thin shape of the tip.
- The pointed tip helps to ensure accuracy when drilling into the material.
- Vanadium swiss drill bits are made from high-grade steel
- This drill bit is particularly well-suited for harder metals. such as platinum, palladium & titanlum, gold & silver.
