Do it yourself with metal drill bits
If you're planning a DIY job, in the middle of one, or you're a tradesperson and need replacement drill bits, you can get a high quality selection of metal drill bits for cutting various materials right here on eBay.
Finding the right drill bit for the type of hole you need to bore, in anything from masonry to wood, metal or plastics, will allow you to get the job done to a high standard in good time. Whether you require sets, individual metal drill bits, or a drill bit sharpener, you'll find exactly what you need with metal drill bits from top trade brands.Drilling with HSS drill bits
You may need HSS (or high speed steel) drill bits for drilling into a range of materials from metal to wood. HSS is your best bet for drilling into metal, particularly non-ferrous metals like aluminium, copper, brass, zinc, iron, and non-alloyed steel. For use on alloyed, hardened steel, cast iron, titanium, and stainless steel, look for cobalt drill bits.Cutting with masonry drill bits
Unlike HSS drill bits, masonry drill bits are designed for drilling into tougher materials like stone, block, or concrete, for which you'll need a drill with a hammer drilling function. Cutting with a masonry drill bit is heavy going and you'll need a few breathers along the way, but with the right drill bits, you'll see it done in no time.Size is everything
Measure up your job properly before you buy drill bits because when you're cutting holes into surfaces, the diameter of the hole you cut matters a lot. However, it's not the end of the world because you can fill it again if you make a mistake. So, once you've measured up and got all the drill bits you need, you can strap on that tool belt and get to work.
