A drill bit is an essential accessory for drills and we supply a wide range of them, here at LockShop Direct. Drill bits cut in circular motions to create clean holes in various materials.
When choosing a drill bit, you need to be mindful of drilling capacities to prevent tool damage. Selecting a drill bit that doesn’t fit perfectly will not only damage your power drill but will also affect the quality of the hole cut.
Sharper drill bits are usually the best as they ensure there is less load put on the tool and allow you to achieve better cutting results.
Here at LockShop Direct, we can help you to decide which bit you need – allowing you to drill into materials quickly and effectively.
Different types of drill bits
Drill bits are great for all masonry, joinery and everyday DIY jobs and are available in a range of diameters and lengths. We supply many different types, including:
Carbide tipped drill bits
When compared to steel, the carbide drill bits remain sharp for longer. We suggest using a carbide drill bit if you’re drilling tile or masonry as they will allow you to drill effectively.
The contract tungsten carbide drill bit is a carbide tipped drill bit. Tungsten carbide drill bits are purpose-built for cylinders and hard plates – making them a favourite for the manufacturing industry.
In addition to this, tungsten carbide drill bits are designed to last longer and offer extra stability when drilling through materials. The working life of the tungsten carbide drill bit is one of the main benefits it provides – allowing industries to use tools for longer.
Wood drill bits
Wood drill bits require little force. The Timco flat wood bit is available to order from our LockShop Direct online store. We supply these wood drill bits in various sizes, including 19mm and 22mm, allowing you to choose one that suits your drill and the size of the hole that needs boring.
A wood drill bit will allow you to complete work quickly, whilst keeping the cutting edge clean – preventing the wood from splitting.
