Discuss HSS Drill Bit Set Recommendations in the Electrical Tools and Products area at ElectriciansForums.net

Pop into a local engineering supplier - they tend to keep decent quality HSS bits at sensible prices.

I top up my stock of bits as necessary and never bother with nice sets as only having one of certain sizes would be of little use. If you do want a set, the only advice I can give is to avoid buying cheap as you'll quickly find they cut about as well as crayons.


I will have a look at those. I’ve seen these:

But on the Heller what I am best going for as there is Tin, Co Cobalt and others as I’m starting out so for now I’m looking at a set. I can then as I get more experience look at individual drill bits as and when required.
that bosch set is a good starter. then as you wear any out, just buy singles, unless you are adept at sharpennig.


It also depends on how much you are willing to pay. Something like this is good but not cheap:

Also if you do more "engineering work" you might need the odd sizes that are drilled before tapping a hole.
