Anyone that has built something has likely used drill bits to do it. Drill bits are often found at the bottom of the toolbox out of sight, but they are used for almost every project. There are many types of drill bits that can be used, depending on the different projects.
Most drill come with a standard set of drill bits so that you can work with different materials and holes. Most drill bits are made or carbide, which is a durable metal that does not get damaged easily. There are different types of drill bits, from spiral to straight drill bits. Knowing the difference between these will help you differentiate which ones are the better ones to use. Be careful when trying to distinguish different drill bits. There might be several that look alike, but when used, will not produce the same results. For higher quality products, make sure that you are using the drill bits that will make clean cuts and not damage the material.
Most drills can be adjusted to fit different drill bits. They often come with a set of different size bits. The standard set will have drill bits for everyday use, but for any special projects or custom projects it is a good idea to go out and buy separate drill bits. Also, buying a separate set will get you higher quality drill bits that can last longer.
