Woodstock Drill Gauge Set

Woodstock D4141 Drill-Gauge Set, 3-Piece

If you are sick of going to get a 5mm drill and find something that looks like 5mm but not sure if it’s a 4.5mm or a 5.5mm nevermind a 4 or 6, Drill-Gauge Set is for you.

Woodstock D4141 isn’t high precision gauge, some small indexes are wrong. It is difficult to separate fractional and wire size drill bits that are only a few thousandths of an inch different in diameter. For better precision, you can use more expensive Irwin gauge

But gauges are made of non-cheap metal, very durable, and accuracy for medium and big diameter bits is good enough. If you use it for your DIY projects and don’t need ridiculously tight tolerances, it is your choice.

Cheap set for time to time use. Box is cheap too. Buy it if you need to cover all often used sizes. When often used drills will become dull, buy single high-quality ones instead.

Probably, for home use you will never need to do it 🙂

 

8 Pcs Cheap Carbide Masonry Bit Set

I think, that with carbide tipped drills you really do get what you pay for. Therefore, If you are drilling a lot of holes or very large holes (let us know please) you might be better off renting a rotary hammer.

Drilling in concrete can vary quite significantly. Block will be much softer than poured concrete and the age of the concrete also maters. It keeps curing for decades so old concrete can be insanely hard to drill in to with a hammer drill. The bigger the hole you are trying to drill the harder it gets. If you need to make lots of holes and it’s really becoming too difficult you might be better off renting a rotary hammer. That will punch through with minimal effort.

This set is cheap and works well for a home use. With a hammer drill you usually don’t drill often If you drill hundreds of holes a day, better buy a high-quality one and think about SDS drill, it is MUCH more productive.

 

Ginsco 3pcs HSS Step Bits Set

Ginsco 3pcs 4-12/20/32mm Large HSS Steel Step Drill Bit Set Hole Cutter

Great for using with plain steel, plastic, plywood and PVC. They are very sharp and cut smooth.

Standard high-quality HSS bits are good for 99% of the drilling tasks that anyone would do. IMO the best solution for a home shop is to buy HSS, and use a spotting drill.
