    I buy drill bits in sets except for replacement bits of more expensive ones. Router bits individually as I need them. Jigsaw blades in packs with all the same blades in it. OMT blades usually individually as I need them. Driver bits usually in packs.

    What the hell are you drilling Aaron? Letting us know that and might help you better.

    Frank! What is your SIL up to now?

    It’s like he has a secret lab in his shop and always up to no good. He He

    @r-ice,
    I hope you are taking your time drilling through the hardened steel and not trying to power drill through it?

    lol i am going to have to buy a lab coat and also build one of those bubbling beaker sets with lights heh. All I am drilling is carbon steel and stainless steel. I use either when I am making knives and usually I just drill during the annealed stage as it makes more sense but occasionally i realized I missed a hole or just want to change it up to add a few holes after. So that is why I want some HSS drill bits to make it easier to sharpen as black oxide, ti, cobolt you can’t sharpen.

    This is why i buy sets like these when i come across them. Granted not the best bits made, but for $4.50 on clearance it stocked me up on the fragile smaller bits

    Yep stocking on bits that cheap just makes sense. You can’t beat the price and the you’re right the fragile bits always are breaking.

    I have been pretty lucky, I have been able to restock my bits from work,
    And the last class over years I bought the Bosch black oxide, the cobalt, and the titanium bits. Mu bethepro.com quality, they last and last imo

    The only bit that gave me problems was the 5/32 cement bit that came with the Bosch anchor drive system, looks like the hardened tip let go , forgot what I do drilling with this,

    Those aren’t bad but i’d rather have hss, its just on the fact you can sharpen them, i can’t be bothered running to the store to replace them lol.

    Man Dirty that is a beast of a circular saw. Definitely need your Wheaties to wield that one around.

    Well don’t know if you noticed, but they do sell sets, and individuals, so you can buy more individuals of the ones you use more, because I can’t be bothered with sharpening 😉

    There is that lol, I just like having them on hand. specially the smaller bits as I’ve somehow snapped them while using them. Perhaps I’ll have to give the bosch ones a go as I have a few metal projects coming up as well.

    I’m going to buy a set of abrasives and a single chisel. Some might do it the other way around! 🙂

    Buddy of mine used those on wood to seal the wood and give it a glass like finish.
