I've found that I can buy good, better and best drill bits from McMaster-Carr along with a host of other industrial type supplies. The prices even with shipping are competitive with the local stores and without me firing up my Guzzler V10. I ordered some special 2 sided tape yesterday afternoon - and it will be delivered this afternoon by 4:00(I'm at the end of the UPS/FEDEX routes).

|pepi||any good drill bit will benefit from two items you might like to add to your collection.......... cutting oil is a biggie saves the bits also will make a hacksaw cut like a cleaver. A drill doctor, great tool and works as advertised, however I would suggest the 750 or higher because of the way it positions the bit in the holder.|

hi,buy only COBALT drill bits,expensive,but last 5 times as long a hss (at least) will drill S/S easily........

Slow is not always what you want when drilling steel. A 1/8 drill should run 3000 RPM.....That may be some of the problem. Here is a chart to help pick the right speed for the size drill.
Good luck with those eyes. I have a daughter with a vision problem so I feel for ya.

www.use-enco.com These guys have some Chinese bits but they tell you right up front which one's are imported and which are quality made US and European tools.
Mrwood how's the eye? I really hope you are doing better these days.

Where is a good place to order high quality bits for steel. Im so sick of buying bits from different places that get dull before you get the first hole drilled, or they break off. I have a great drill press, and i always have my speed set slow and use oil. What company can i trust anymore so i dont buy made from china.
