Choose the Right Drill Bit for the Job
Comparing the major bits for precision work: what they do, and how they do it
Drilling clean, accurate holes should be simple, but selecting the right bit for the job can be complicated. Chairmaker Brian Boggs breaks down the field and explains the anatomy of each bit – how it is designed and how the design affects performance, so that you can find the bits that best cover the range of your drilling needs. You’ll learn the advantages, limitations, and best uses for twist-drill bits, brad-point bits, Forstner and multispur bits, Powerbore bits, auger bits, and spoon bits.
